Loch Maree is a body of water in the Ross and Cromarty region of the Scottish Highlands. At 20 kilometers long and with a maximum width of 4 kilometers, it is the fourth largest freshwater loch in Scotland. Its surface area is 28.6 square kilometers (11.0 square miles).
Loch Maree contains five large wooded islands and over 25 smaller ones. Isle Maree has the remains of a chapel on it, believed to the 7th Century hermitage of Saint Maelrubha . The same island also contains ancient stands of oak and holly which have been linked with ancient scottish druids. All of the loch's islands are conservation areas.
