Does anyone have the answer to why not ‘in A lake’ not ‘in THE lake?

Would loch be marked as correct?

Loch vs Lake is the intermediate level pants vs trousers, eh?

Why is it not "in a lake"? I'm confused!

"ann an loch" - in a lake
"anns an loch" - in the lake

Basically the "an" in "ann an" doesn't mean "the" like it does in other places, I don't really have an explanation for why, since I'm no expert
