Lochbuie & Locally

Barrachandroman - Lochbuie

Reduced rates and short breaks for Nov-March

 

  Lochbuie is commonly taken to mean the area of the Lochbuie Estate (now approx 22,000 acres) which extends from the graveyard at Balure in the East on the Lochbuie road, northwards over to Glen More and back to the sea at Lochbuie by Glenbyre in the West. To the South is the peninsula of Croggan and Laggan deer forest with Loch Spelve to the East, freshwater Loch Uisg centrally and Loch Buie to the West. The land has been owned and farmed by the Corbett family since 1921 and is managed by Jim Corbett who resides in Lochbuie House. Lochbuie village (17 houses) is situated around Loch Buie and Croggan (7 houses) is at the mouth of Loch Spelve. 7 houses (including the converted Thomas Telford Kinlochspelvie Church) are midway in the Kinlochspelve area. The Ben Buie estate, situated to the North of Lochbuie village, is owned by the successors of George Sassoon having been purchased by his mother in the mid 1940's

Laggan Beach - Lochbuie

Loch Buie with Jura behind

This is the homeland of the MacLaines of Lochbuie, rich in history (see following pages), wildlife (fauna and flora), geology and scenery. Varied with fresh and seawater lochs, wild hilltops and wooded valleys , quiet beaches and ever changing views, it is arguably one of the best areas of the island.
 

With open access to the hills and shore (limited during the deer stalking season) this is the ideal area for walkers. The rugged hills of Craig Ben ( 698 Mtr) and Ben Buie (717 Mtr) or the gentler hills of Laggan (405 Mtr) offer magnificent views and solitude except for the deer. For the less energetic the shore paths around Loch Buie and Loch Spelve are worthwhile with diverse flora and possible views of otters


In Spring, late in Mull being end April and May, the sides of Loch Uisg are covered in mauve rhododendrons ( pontians) and the roadsides at Lochbuie are yellow with gorse from which Loch Buie derives it's name - yellow loch. In autumn the hills are mottled with sunlight on the dried bracken and in winter the tops are frequently capped with snow. Snow at lower levels is unusual due to the closeness of warm sea water
