Loch Ashie


A spectral army is said to appear on the shores of the loch at dawn on May the first, which is Beltane in the Celtic calander. One sighting is alleged to have taken place during the First World War, when a walker was on the moors close to the loch. He witnessed a battling army of horsemen and foot soldiers savaging each other in silence. They promptly vanished in the blink of an eye.

Tradition suggests that the warriors are men from the army of Finn Mac Cumhail, the Irish folk hero, this may be a folk memory of a real battle, which took place in the area.

Directions: The loch can be reached from a minor road off the B862, to the Northwest of Loch Ness.
