Rainbow on Loch Maree, near Talladale

This postcard shows a rainbow on Loch Maree, near Talladale in Wester Ross. Talladale consists of only a small gathering of houses but is famous for being home to the Loch Maree Hotel, where Queen Victoria once stayed on a visit to the Highlands.

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. The loch 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
