Sunart, Loch, a sea-loch of Argyllshire, winding 19 miles eastward, from the northern entrance of the Sound of Mull. to within 5 miles of Loch Linnhe. It separates Ardnamurchan and Sunart on the N from Mull and Morven on the S. Its breadth, for the first 5 miles, is generally upwards of 2 miles, but afterwards varies between 3 and 11 furlongs. It contains a number of islets, the chief of which are ORANSAY, Carnich, Riska, Dungallan, Garve, and More. Glen Tarbert - a rough pastoral valley - extends from its head to Loch Linnhe, and brings down to it a parliamentary road from Corran Ferry, whence the communication is continued to Fort William. Loch Sunart, though little visited, possesses considerable scenic beauty."
