Loch Rosque looking towards Sgurr-na-Vullin, Achnasheen

This postcard shows Loch Rosque, known in Gaelic as 'Loch a'Chroisg', meaning 'loch of the crossing'. It may have been given this name by the cattle drovers who used to stop here on their way across the country from Wester Ross to markets in Dingwall and Inverness. The loch is 3 miles (5km) long from east to west and is good for trout fishing.

Sgurr-na-Vullin, or Sgurr a'Mhuilinn (meaning 'hill of the mill'), is a complex of five peaks reaching 2845 feet (879 metres) at its highest point. It is one of the landmarks on the scenic Dingwall to Kyle railway line.
