Loch Linnhe is about 50 kilometres (31 mi) long. It opens onto the Firth of Lorne at its south-western end. The part of the loch upstream of Corran is 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) long and only about an average of 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) wide. The southern part of the loch is wider, and its branch which lies to the south-east of the island of Lismore is known as the Lynn of Lorne. Loch Eil feeds into Loch Linnhe at the latter's northernmost point, while from the east Loch Leven feeds in the loch just downstream of Corran and Loch Creran feeds into the Lynn of Lorne. The town of Fort William lies at the northeast end of the loch, at the mouth of the River Lochy. During the summer months, Loch Linnhe is perpendicular with the setting sun, making it a popular location for photographers.
