FALLS OF THE MORAR, NEAR THE LOCH THAT WITNESSED THE TAKING OF LORD LOVAT

FALLS OF THE MORAR, NEAR THE LOCH THAT WITNESSED THE TAKING OF LORD LOVAT

The river Morar, on the rugged west coast of Inverness-shire, makes up in beauty what it lacks in length and width; its falls and rapids are a delight. The neighbouring Loch Morar, of which it is an outflow, recalls the last days of the Clans as a militant force, for it was on the largest of its islands that the old Lord Lovat, forced to flee for his life after the Battle of Culloden, found a temporary refuge, only to be taken by the Hanoverian troops two months later.
