Kinlochewe and Loch Maree

This postcard shows a view of Kinlochewe and Loch Maree in the district of Ross-shire. The fresh water Loch Maree is twelve miles long and extends from Kinlochewe to near Poolewe. Most of the loch is only about half a mile wide. It broadens into about a mile in places and has several small islands.

The loch is thought to have taken its name from the Irish saint Maelrubha who founded a monastery at nearby Applecross. St Maelrhuba later made his home on one of Loch Maree's islands, Isle Maree. The village of Kinlochewe is overlooked by magnificent scenery, with the Beinne Eighe National Nature reserve to the South and Ben Slioch to the North.
