Highland Farm at Gairloch

This photograph, taken by G. Hendry, shows a view in the Gairloch area, with a stone dyke clearly visible in the foreground. The rocky and hilly scenery evident in the photograph is typical of the region.

The Gairloch community once consisted of a number of small settlements. Prior to the completion of the road in 1843, access to the area was almost exclusively by sea. Once 'opened up', the area became a popular destination for Victorian tourists whishing to sample a taste of the Highland 'sublime'. This boom followed the visitation of Queen Victoria herself, who rested there during her stay in 1877 at the nearby Loch Maree Hotel.
