View across Loch Duich from Ratagan Youth Hostel

This postcard shows the view across Loch Duich from Ratagan Youth Hostel in Ross-shire. The mountains of Ben Attow (1032m) and Glas Bheinn Mhor (997m) can be seen in the background. Loch Duich is a sea loch that travels south east from the village of Dornie and leads into the Kyle of Loch Alsh, before flowing into the open sea. The Ratagan Youth Hostel building was constructed in the 1800s as part of a plan to develop wool manufacturing and large scale fishing within the nearby area. Today, the hostel is popular with both walkers and tourists
