Munlochy, Highland

Munlochy is a small village, in northern Scotland, lying at the head of Munlochy Bay (Ob Poll Lòchaidh). There are few early records of a settlement, but it seems likely that Munlochy expanded in the 1760s due to quarry workers extracting stone nearby to build Fort George on the far side of the Moray Firth.
