No and no  :z19

Additional clues.

New Bridge, Frying Pan, the Dubh Lochan, Falls and Monument are all pools on the small river that flows from the loch to the sea.
The loch is dammed at the western (seaward) end.

This loch is south of Loch Maree but North of Loch Etive (I simply can't make this too easy :!).

Good try Jim, but (as a couple of others have guessed) Loch Creran is a sea loch and it's a freshwater loch I'm after.
The River Creran has a loch on it..... but it's something like Baile Chailen or something else equally unpronounceable in Gaelic. I intend to fish it.... one day.

I actually had the first week of my honeymoon at Invercreran - lovely place :cool:
