Looking across Loch Maree

This postcard shows a view of Loch Maree 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. 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. The south-east shore of Loch Maree is dominated by Ben Slioch, standing at 3,220ft
