As you can see from the photo above Loch Maree is of sheer beauty, the longest freshwater loch in Scotland that hasn't been impacted by us, humans. It has a total of 66 islands to explore with a pair of nesting sea eagles which can be spotted as you paddle down the loch if we're lucky. The surrounding area is steeped in history and folklore, and it doesn't take long to understand why this area is a delightful favourite.
