Loch Maree, Ross-shire

"The scenery on either side of it is about the most utterly savage and terrific". Taken from 'Anderson's Guide to the Highlands' by George and Peter Anderson.

Loch Maree is situated between the towns of Kinlochewe and Gairloch in Wester Ross. One of the small islands in the loch, Isle Maree, has the ruins of a chapel established by the Irish monk Maelrubha in the 7th Century.

The south-east shore of the loch is dominated by Slioch which stands at 3,220ft and is only accessible from one side. The south-west shore makes up part of the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. Loch Maree is also noted for its sea-trout fishing
