Loch Maree and Ben Slioch from above Kinlochewe Lodge

This postcard shows Loch Maree and Ben Slioch from above Kinlochewe Lodge in Wester Ross. To the right of the lodge is the River Kinlochewe. The lodge was built during the Victorian era as a traditional Highland shooting lodge.

The fresh water Loch Maree is twelve miles long and extends from Kinlochewe to near Poolewe. Most of the loch is only about half a mile wide. It broadens into about a mile in places and has several small islands.

Loch Maree is thought to have taken its name from the Irish saint Maelrubha who founded a monastery at nearby Applecross. St Maelrhuba later made his home on one of Loch Maree's islands, Isle Maree. The south-east shore of Loch Maree is dominated by Ben Slioch which stands at 3,220ft and is only accessible from one side
