The Head of Loch Ewe from Inverasdale

This postcard shows the head of Loch Ewe from Inverasdale

Inverasdale is one of a number of small crofting settlements (sometimes collectively referred to as Inverasdale) on the western shore of Loch Ewe in Wester Ross. During the early part of the nineteenth century the inhabitants of the inland glens were cleared to the coast to make way for sheep farming.

Loch Ewe was an important naval base during both World Wars and in World War II it served as an assembly point for Arctic convoys to Russia.
