Lochailort attractions


highlands of ScotlandLochailort is at the head of Loch Ailort where the A861 joins the A830. The loch is one of the many sea-lochs that stretch in from the Hebrides. The origins of Lochailort date back to at least 1650 when an inn was recorded here, and by 1750 the settlement had grown enough to feature on a map as Kinloch Hoylort. Early in the 1800s Lochailort saw its first road with the arrival of Thomas Telford and his "Road to the Isles" from Fort William to Arisaig, and much later to Mallaig. A fish farming company here breed salmon and other species, with farming units in Loch Ailort itself.
