Boats on Loch Ewe

A photograph of traditionally rigged sailing boats, pulled up to shore at Loch Ewe, on the west coast of the Highlands.

Loch Ewe is a sea-loch in the district of Ross and Cromarty. It is not particularly deep, with an average depth of 15m and a maximum of 40m, but it has been a maritime assembly point of some strategic importance since at least the 17th century. During the Second World War, submarines entered the Atlantic Ocean from the loch. Ship convoys headed to West Africa and North America and those on on the 'Arctic Run' north to Norway and Murmansk, also anchored in the loch.
