Loch Moidart

Loch Moidart is a sea loch in the district of Moidart in Inverness-shire. It is situated in the extreme south-west of the county, and runs about five miles eastward from the sea. It is connected to the sea by two narrow channels which are separated by the island of Eilean Shona, which in turn is nearly split in two by a narrow isthmus. The River Moidart enters the loch at its head, near the hamlet of Ardmolich.

The A861 road runs along the loch's northern shore; it is a remote circuitous route which connects to the A830 at both ends, without passing through any significant settlements.
