Photograph of 'Loch an Eilean' that can be seen in the background. In the foreground is dense forest and a single tree stands on the left of the image.

The name 'Loch an Eilean' derives from the Gaelic, meaning the Loch of the island. There is a small island in the centre of the loch on which stands a 15th century castle.
