John R Hume explores the history of the village and church of Kinlochleven.

THERE are two Loch Levens (or Lochs Leven) in Scotland. The more celebrated one is in Kinross, and is famous among fly-fishermen for its brown trout, and among the historically-minded for the imprisonment in 1568 of Mary, Queen of Scots in an island castle, from which she escaped with the help of a devoted young lad.

The other Loch Leven is much less well-known, but is notable for its mountain scenery. It is a sea-loch, opening off Loch Linnhe close to Ballachulish. At its head is the village of Kinlochleven, created in its present form in the early 20th century by the British Aluminium Company to house workers in the company’s new aluminiumsmelting works.
