Lochcarron village as seen from the viewpoint near Attadale on the south side of Loch Carron

Nestling at the head of a deep sea loch, between the spectacular Torridon and Kintail mountain ranges, Lochcarron is an excellent centre from which to explore some of the most beautiful and romantic scenery in the Highlands of Scotland.
Lochcarron is reputed to be the longest village in Scotland and stretches out for a distance of 2 miles or more along the north shore of Loch Carron, from which it derives its name. In days gone by, however, the village was known as Jeantown.
The view above shows the village as seen from the viewpoint near Attadale on the south side of Loch Carron. Standing in the background are the magnificent buttresses of the Applecross mountains, between which passes the road to Applecross village via the Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle), one of the highest roads in the United Kingdom.

Looking east towards the head of Loch Carron with the well known local landmark of "Wellington" reflected in the water on a truly superb November day.

There are now several routes by which it is possible to travel to Lochcarron (see "How to Get Here"), these including access by rail, but this was not always the case.
The development of the village as it is now started in the early 19th century, as an imitation of the Government-sponsored fishing villages such as Ullapool. However, it was not until about 1820 that a cart track was constructed to enable access to the east coast. Prior to that, you had to go by sea or scramble over the mountains!
As for access from the south west (i.e. via Fort William), this used to be via a ferry crossing at Strome Ferry (now "no ferry"!) until the 1960's when the "Strome Ferry By-Pass" was constructed along the south side of Loch Carron. Strome Castle, the nearest castle to Lochcarron, stands close to the old ferry slipway which once was extremely busy during the summer months but is now a quiet  and pleasant backwater.
