Loch Duich (Scottish Gaelic: “Loch Dubhthaich” is a sea loch situated on the western coast of Scotland, in the Highlands. It is a popular area for tourists and fishermen. Eilean Donan Castle stands at the meeting point of Loch Duich, Loch Long, and Loch Alsh. A legend connected with Loch Duich states that three brothers who went fishing at the loch one night became enraptured by three seal-maidens who had thrown off their furs, assumed the likeness of humans, and danced in the moonlight on the sands. The brothers stole their furs, intending to claim the seal-maidens as their wives. The youngest brother, however, moved by the seal-girl’s distress, returned her seal-skin. For his kindness, the girl’s father allowed the youngest brother to visit the maiden every ninth night. As for the other two brothers, the middle brother lost his wife after the seal-maiden he had captured found her stolen fur, while the eldest brother burnt his wife’s fur as a preventative measure, only to burn her accidentally in the process. This art print was taken at Loch Duich just as the sun was coming up through the dense fog. Photography by Graham Cormie.
