Loch Carron, Wester Ross, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on Loch Carrona sea loch on the west coast of Ross and Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. This loch separates the Lochalsh peninsula from the Applecross peninsula, and from the headland east of Loch Kishorn. It is the point at which the River Carron enters the North Atlantic Ocean.

Many tourists encounter this loch as they travel between Kyle of Lochalsh near Skye and Shieldag or Applecross with such trips entailing a circumnavigation along the A890 and A896.

On the northern bank of the loch is the village of Lochcarron which has a population of about 920 persons and is reputed to be the longest village in Scotland which stretches out for a distance of 2 miles or more along the north shore of the loch. Close by can be found Lochcarron Weavers (tartans, luxury knitwear, kilts, tweed clothing, etc.) and Attadale Gardens.
