Loch Duich and Dùnan Diarmid

The promontory pictured juts out into the lower part of Loch Duich, with the village of Ratagan strung out along the shore opposite. Sgurr a' Bhroanain rises behind. The Ordnance Survey map names the hill on the promontory as Dùnan Diarmid, indicating that a small fort is located on the site. The house just seen close to the shore is named as Tigh-à-Mholain, house of the shingle beach in English. The area is close to the ancient church and cemetery of Clachan Duich, and the people seen on the extreme right and walking in the distance, may have been part of a group, along with Duncan Macpherson the photographer, visiting the site
