Loch Monar and Monar Forests, head of Glen Strathaffar

This postcard shows Loch Monar at the head of Glen Strathfarrar. Bordering it are the East Monar Forest and the West Monar Forest. A dam was built on Loch Monar as part of the Affric-Beauly Hydro-Electric Scheme completed in the early 1990s.

Glen Strathfarrar stretches for approximately 12 miles and carries the River Farrar east from Loch Monar, through Loch a' Mhuillidh and Loch Beannacharan, to join the River Glass near Struy.
