Avec ses 250 hectares de superficie environ, le lac au duc est situé sur les communes de Loyat, Ploërmel et Taupont. D’une profondeur de 5 à 7 mètres, il est large de 500 à 900 mètres et mesure 5.5 km de long. C’est l’une des réserves d’eau les plus étendues de Bretagne après le lac de Guerlédan.

The local story is that the beast of Guibourg, a terrifying Wyvern (winged creature with a dragon’s head), raged near the dark and foul waters, often hidden by mists at dusk ... Armel, the founder monk of the future “city of the Dukes” tamed the dragon and is now the subject of many tales ...
