Loch Maree looking to the islands

This postcard shows Loch Maree in Wester Ross, looking towards the islands. The loch contains over thirty islands, five of which are of moderate size.

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 but broadens into about a mile in places. 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
