Lochinver Harbour

A view of the harbour at the coastal village of Lochinver, on the west coast of Sutherland. The Harbour is a landing point for both the UK whitefish fleet and vessels from other European countries. Its proximity to the North Atlantic fishing grounds enhance its commercial activity by saving steaming time, which provides additional fishing time and reduces turnaround time.

Located at the terminus of the A837, Lochinver is an Anglicisation of the Gaelic 'Loch an Inbhir', which translates as the loch of the inlet. The village's heart centres on the Main Street which runs alongside Loch Inver.

Lochinver is located in a rugged and remote region of the Highlands and its most distinctive feature are the stunning views it affords of the nearby Suilven (2398 feet). Hillwalkers and climbers frequently descend on the region to set off on the walk up one of Scotland's most evocative peaks.
