Loch Garry

This photograph shows a view of Loch Garry, located 25 km north of Fort William, Lochaber. The loch measures approximately 11 km in length and 50 metres in depth and is fed via the River Garry from the waters of Loch Quoich, 10 km upstream. The loch is much photographed because of its attractive setting and because of a quirk of perspective, which makes the loch appear to resemble the profile of Scotland, when viewed from a certain angle.

Glen Garry is the ancestral home of the MacDonnell of Glengarry, but the population in the area has been reduced to a series of estates since the Highland Clearances precipitated emigration from the area.

Deer stalking and forestry now constitute the main human activities in the area, with a few hill walkers entering the remote region to climb the munros.
