The loch is well used for recreational boating, water sports and fishing. Harbour and grey seals are often seen in the Gare Loch along with pods of porpoise. Bottle Nose whales were photographed in September 2020.[citation needed] The loch also has been used since the early 20th century for naval training and as a base for the United Kingdom's submarine based nuclear weapons system.[1][2]
