Sutherland - Loch Inchard near Rhiconich and Kinlochbervie Sutherland

Postcard of a scene from Loch Inchard, Sutherland.

Loch Inchard sits just south of Cape Wrath and is one of the most northerly sea lochs on the west coast of Scotland. It is well known for its fishing port of Kinlochbervie, which is based at Loch Inchard and the adjacent Loch Clash. A salmon fishing operation runs from Loch Clash, while at Loch Inchard shellfish are farmed.

The Sutherland name dates from the era of Norse rule over much of the Highlands and Islands, especially in the north and west, which was perhaps at its zenith in the early 11th century, when Sigurd the Stout was jarl of Orkney. Suðrland was then land to the south of, or in the south of, Norse Caithness. As a Scottish county, however, Sutherland also includes land which is to the west of the county of Caithness.
