Loch Maree and islands

This postcard shows Loch Maree and some of its islands in Ross-shire. 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.The loch contains over thirty islands, five of which are of moderate size
