Loch Achilty

A boat moored on the shores of Loch Achilty, a 100-acre loch about three miles west of Strathpeffer. It is a good fishing loch, surrounded by birch-clad hills which slope down to the water's edge.

Loch Achilty contains a crannog, or small artificial island, one of several in Ross and Cromarty. These crannogs appear to date from the Iron Age but may have been used as late as the 17th century. Crannogs had a good defensive position as well as an easy supply of fresh water.
