Loch Maree local holiday B&B accommodation

Loch Maree Latitude: 57.710462 Longitude: -5.530647

Loch Maree is in Wester Ross was the site of iron-smelting activities about three centuries ago. Much of the ore came from neighbouring bogs, though eventually it was imported from other parts of Britain.

There are still traces of these old furnaces in the area. Some of the employees were English and near by there is a spot known as Cladh nan Sassunach, the burial ground of the English.

The metal produced in the locality was used for swords and armour, for which, with the many clan feuds in progress at the time, there was a big demand. In 1877 Queen Victoria came to marvel she left a stone with a Gaelic inscription commemorating her visit.

If your visiting Loch Maree then check out the local B&B accommodation.

On this island are the graves of a Danish princess and her lover still marked by ancient crosses. The Benne Eighe National Nature Reserve lies near the south-eastern end of this mile long loch.
