Loch Maree

Measuring 20 km in length and with a maximum width of 4 km, Loch Maree is Scotland’s fourth largest fresh-water loch. Its name is a translation of the Gaelic, Loch Ma-ruibhe, after the Irish Saint Maol Rubha, who founded the monastery at Applecross in 672. The ruins of a chapel and graveyard on Isle Maree are believed to have been the saint's hermitage for a number of years. Loch Maree is nestled amongst some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery and is bordered by the mountains Slioch on its north shore and Beinn Eighe to the south.
