Cherry Island (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Muireach, meaning Murdoch's Island) is the only island in Loch Ness, Highland, Scotland, and is an example of a crannog. The island is about 150 yards (140 m) from the shore near the southern end of the loch. The island was originally 160 feet (49 m) by 168 feet (51 m) across, but is now smaller as the level of the loch was raised when it became part of the Caledonian Canal. The increase in the level of the loch caused a smaller natural island nearby Eilean Nan Con (also known in its Anglicised form of "Dog Island"), to be totally submerged.
