Loyne  Inverness Shire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Loyne like this:

Luine or Loyne, a stream of Ross and Inverness shires, rising at an altitude of 1100 feet above sea-level, and flowing 13 ¼ miles east-north-eastward-for 7¾ miles along the boundary between the two counties-till, after a total descent of 620 feet, it falls into the Moriston at a point 1 mile SW of Ceanacroc shooting-lodge and 13 W of Fort Augustus. Its marshy expansion, Loch Luine, 3 miles N of Tomdoun inn, is 4 5/8 miles long, but only 50 yards to 3 furlongs wide.—Ord. Sur., sh. 72, 1880.
