History of the Carramore Name

Carramore is the Anglicised form of Carraig Mhor in Scottish Gaelic. Carraig means rock and mhor (pronounced vor in Gaelic) is the feminine form of 'great' or 'big'.

It is the name given to a rock close to the land, in Gruinard Bay, on the north-west coast of Scotland. The grandfather of the company’s founder (Alasdair Grant) moored his fishing boat on the shore opposite it.

The 4 photos show Carramore from different shore positions, in varying weather conditions and at different states of the tide.

The pictures to the left show, in the distance, some of the high mountains on the west coast of Ross-shire and Sutherland. The picture on the right shows Carramore in the foreground, with the saddle shaped Beinn Goblach (pronounced Ben Golach) in the background, and Gruinard Island in between. This island was the site of anthrax experiments during the Second World War.
