Lochcarron – An All-round Vacation Destination

Up until the road reached Strome in 1813, Lochcarron was known by the name of Janetown, and was little more than a few homes and very few villagers. With the new road connecting villages and improving access to many of the remote communities there was a rise in population numbers and the establishment of a permanent village. Lochcarron is a picturesque destination in Scotland, with the village being located on the shores of the Loch Carron and against the backdrop of a breathtaking landscape.

Visitors to Lochcarron do not have to fear that they are entering a
town
that was lost in time. It has a beautiful hotel
that
is located in the middle of the village, and boasts a large
selection of
accommodation in and around the village. There are many shops to browse
through
or purchase souvenirs and memorabilia from. Lochcarron also has its roots in
the
extremely strong tradition of weaving and the production of kilts. Wood
turners, potteries and many historic buildings will keep visitors busy
for
hours.

Outdoor enthusiasts can also look forward to exploring the
spectacular
countryside on foot or enjoy a quiet trip on the Loch Carron. The
surrounding areas of Lochcarron are ideal for spotting wildlife such as
otters, seals and deer, and looking towards the skies might reveal a

waters or enjoy fishing. Hikers will be thrilled by the rugged terrain
that

Golf
Club is set on a picturesque location, with rolling hills on the one
side
and the beautiful shores on the other. The golf course has nine holes
and
golfers will enjoy the tranquility of the course.

Lochcarron is a popular destination in Scotland due to its close
proximity of two historical Scottish castles. The Eilean Donan Castle is
located on
the Island of Donan and it is believed that fortifications on
the
island date back to the 6th and 7th century. The castle that is seen
today
was constructed over these fortifications between the years of 1912 and
1932. The ruin of the Strome Castle is another popular attraction
that is
frequently visited.
