Loch Maree Hotel

Loch Maree is situated between the towns of Kinlochewe and Gairloch in Wester Ross. The hotel stands on the shores of the loch. The advertisement boasts that the hotel was 'lately Her Majesty's West Highland Residence'. Queen Victoria stayed in the hotel from 12 - 18 September 1877 and a plaque commemorates her visit.

Loch Maree is noted for its sea-trout fishing and the hotel advertisement claims that 20 square miles of free fishing are available.
