Bucinch or Buc-Innis (Scottish Gaelic: "Buck Island" or "Male Goat Island") is a small island in Loch Lomond, in west central Scotland.

The heavily wooded island lies due north of Inchcruin and rises steeply from a rocky coastline to 24 metres (79 feet) in a central summit.

Along with smaller neighbour, Ceardach, Bucinch was donated to the National Trust for Scotland by Col Charles L Spencer of Warmanbie, Dumfries, in 1943. Although uninhabited for centuries, there are remains of a stone jetty.
