Down to Loch Maree

View down to Loch Maree in Wester Ross. Derived from the Gaelic 'Loch Ma'ruibhe,' named after Saint Mael Rhuba who founded a chapel on Maree Island in the eighth century, it is the fourth largest freshwater loch in Scotland, with a length of 20km and a maximum width of 4km. Considered to be one of Scotland's most picturesque lochs, the A832 to the west coast passes along its southern bank.

Loch Maree is bordered by Slioch (3218 feet) on the northern bank and Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve to the south. Its location in prime hillwalking country means the region is beset by an annual influx of visitors to climb the surrounding peaks.
