Loch Maree, Scotland

 This evening, I am focusing on Loch Maree in Wester Ross, N.W.Scotland. Key aspects:

  • Dimensions are 20 km by 4 km and ranks as fourth largest fresh water loch in Scotland.
  • Nearest sizeable town is Gairloch, on the coast.
  • Inverewe Garden, a visitor site, is located close to the northern tip of the Loch.
  • Suited for recreational facilities such as camping, kayaking and sailing.
  • Contains numerous islands including: Eilean Ruairidh Mor, Garbh Eilean, Eilean Subhainn and Isle Maree. Latter contains historic burials. Collectively, the islands form a National Nature Reserve.
  • The waters contain sea trout and salmon.
  • The mountain visible in the image immediately below is Slioch which rises to a height of 3215 feet.
