The approximately 3.6 km long and 650 m wide lake is located in the middle of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park in the Stirling Council Area between the lakes Loch Katrine and Loch Lomond . The nearest larger town is about 19 km southeast of Aberfoyle . Various mountain streams from the surrounding slopes feed the lake, of which the Corriearklet Burn is the largest. Loch Arklet covers an area of approximately 2.07 km 2 . On the short west bank, Loch Arklet drains via Arklet Water into Loch Katrine.
The construction of a water pipeline between Loch Katrine and the city began in 1855 to supply water to the growing city of Glasgow. Queen Victoria officially opened the building on October 14, 1859. As a result of the increased demand for water, the system was expanded in 1885. To further increase the volume of Loch Katrine, Loch Arklet was dammed between 1909 and 1914. The water level at Loch Arklet was raised by 6.7 m. The inflow of the Arklet Waters into Loch Katrine is regulated via the 320 m long dam. The dam and the associated installations are protected as a monument of the highest Scottish monument category A.
