Loch Linnhe is sea loch a sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. It is about 10 miles long and 1.2 miles wide along most of the length. Part way along it narrows dramatically at Corran, and a car ferry crosses the loch at this point. In Gaelic, the area inland of Corran is known as 'An Linne Dhubh' while the seaward side of the loch is called 'An Linne Sheileach'. At the far eastern end of Loch Linnhe at the mouth of River Lochy is the town of Fort William, often marketed as the Outdoor Capital of the UK, and Ben Nevis.
Next to Fort William the River Lochy feeds into the loch. At this point the body of water turns sharply west, and continues as Loch Eil. On the shores of Loch Linnhe several small villages and hamlets, some of which have Bed and Breakfast accommodation for visitors. The Loch Linnhe Lodges provides one of several self-catering places in the area.
