Loch Inchard and Foinaven from Lochclash Pier, Kinlochbervie

This postcard shows a view of Loch Inchard and Foinaven, from above Loch Clash pier at Kinlochbervie. If has recently been brought to our attention that, despite the caption on the postcard, the photo shows the pier in Loch Bervie, later to become the main harbour for Kinlochbervie. Loch Clash is some way behind the photographer and does not connect to Loch Inchard.

Loch Inchard sits just south of Cape Wrath and is one of the most northerly sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland. It is well known for its fishing port of Kinlochbervie, which is based at Loch Inshard and the adjacent Loch Clash. A salmon fishing operation runs from Loch Clash, while at Loch Inchard shellfish are farmed.

Loch Clash was the site of Kinlochbervie's main pier from 1908 until as recently as the 1970s. In response to Kinlochbervie's growing fishing industry, a new pier was built at Loch Bervie.

The mountain known as Foinaven rises steeply to the east of Loch Inshard. It is composed of quartzite, giving it a spectacular sparkly appearance in the sunshine
