The islands of Loch Maree, from above Talladale

This postcard shows the islands of Loch Maree, from above Talladale in Wester Ross. 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
