Benderloch

Benderloch (Scottish Gaelic: Meadarloch) is a village in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The name is derived from Beinn eadar dà loch, meaning "mountain between two lochs".[1]

Benderloch lies on the A828 road[2] in the coastal area of Appin, Argyll, Scotland. Its railway station closed in 1966.

Benderloch forms part of the Lynn of Lorn National Scenic Area, one of 40 in Scotland.[3]
