We walked from Morar station along the loch to Tarbet, where we caught the pre booked ferry back to Mallaig. The first three miles are along the road and then after that a clear path. It was so beautiful and pieceful. Sometimes the route is...More

Loch Morar has an amazing presence. The loch can change rapidly, mirroring the sky’s colours and the wind. It is a very beautiful place

We stayed within a two minute walk of Loch Morar. It is stunningly beautiful. It is the deepest body of water in Britain but, surprisingly, hadn't attracted many tourists whilst we were there in August.

Loch Morar is beautiful in all seasons but June is special because of the flowers bordering the loch. The only difficulty is finding somewhere safe to park, so that you can get out and enjoy the loch and its surroundings on foot.
