Loch Carron

This photograph shows part of the village of Plockton on the extreme left, and Loch Carron, taken from the vantage point of Creag nan Garadh. The distinctive hill on the horizon, rising 395m behind North Strome, is Bad a Chreamha, while the small tree-topped island in the loch is Sgeir Bhuidhe. The railway which links Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh is just seen in the foreground running close to the shore. This particular stretch from Stromeferry to Kyle took some 10 years to construct due to the difficulty of the engineering involved
