Craig Roy, Loch Maree

A view of Craig Roy, located to the south-east of the impressive Munro Slioch, and bordering Loch Maree.

Craig Roy is particularly notable for exhibiting some very striking effects of glaciation, a reminder of the Ice Age which lifted from the region some 12,500 years ago.

Measuring 20 km in length and with a maximum width of 4 km, Loch Maree is Scotland's fourth largest fresh-water loch. Its name is a translation of the Gaelic, Loch Ma-ruibhe, after the Irish Saint Maol Rubha, who founded the monastery at Applecross in 672. The ruins of a chapel and graveyard on Isle Maree are believed to have been the saint's hermitage for a number of years.
