Overlooking Loch Ewe

A profile of Inveran House, looking east down Loch Ewe. A kilted man can be seen in the foreground, looking east. At the time the photograph was captured, Inveran House belonged to John Henet Dixon of Yorkshire, who was a justice of the peace (JP) for Ross and Cromarty.

Loch Ewe is a sea-loch in the district of Ross and Cromarty. It is not particularly deep, with an average depth of 15 metres and a maximum of 40 metres, 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. In addition, ship convoys headed to West Africa and North America and those on the 'Arctic Run' north to Norway and Murmansk, also anchored in the loch.
