Gaelic: Loch Ma-ruibhe. Named after St. Máelrubai, who founded one of the earliest monastic communities in Scotland at nearby Applecross in the 7th century.

Inside Loch Maree sit many islands. Inside one of those islands there is a loch. Inside that loch, there is another island...

This vast loch, complete with wooded islands, is scenically spectacular, but there is a lot of history on show as well.

Besides the island-loch-island-loch of Eilean Sùbhainn, Eilean Maruibhe contains ancient Viking graves, remains of a chapel and a holy tree.
