The Inverpolly, Loch Urigill and Nearby Lochs IBA is located in Sutherland and Wester Ross in the Highlands of north-west Scotland. The site includes several large lochans and many smaller lochans, most of which are oligotrophic and contain a submerged flora and restricted fauna typical of nutrient-poor conditions. The lochs form part of the core breeding range of Gavia arctica in the UK.
