Loch Maree Hotel staff in the early 1900s

A photograph of staff at Loch Maree Hotel, taken in the early 1900s.

Loch Maree Hotel is famous for having hosted Queen Victoria in 1877 during her tour of the Highlands. The event is credited with beginning a tourist boom in the region.

Derived from the Gaelic 'Loch Ma'ruibhe', named after Saint Mael Rubha who founded a chapel on Maree Island in the eighth century, Loch Maree is the fourth largest freshwater loch in Scotland, with a length of 20 km and a maximum width of 4 km. Considered to be one of Scotland's most picturesque lochs, the A832 to the west coast passes along its southern bank.

Loch Maree is bordered by Slioch (3218 ft) on the northern bank and Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve to the south. Its location in prime hill-walking country means the region is beset by an annual influx of visitors eager to climb the surrounding peaks.
