Tanara Isles

   TANARA ISLES, in the parish of Lochbroom, forming part of the late quoad sacra parish of Ullapool, county of Ross and Cromarty; and containing 99 inhabitants. These are two islands situated at the entrance of Loch Broom, and distant from Ullapool, north-westward, about eleven miles; they are the principal of a group known as the Summer Isles, and are called respectively Tanara-Beg and Tanara-More. The latter, which, as its name implies, is the larger island, is about two miles in length and one in breadth, and upwards of 400 feet high: like the rest of the group, it is bare and bleak, and without any thing of pleasing aspect. It contains, besides a farm, and other buildings, an extensive range of smoking-houses for the use of the herring-fishery; but they have been latterly rendered of little value, owing to the desertion from this quarter of the herring shoals. A pier here, however, is still an occasional rendezvous for fishing-vessels visiting the coast.
