Lochaber (/lɒxˈɑːbər/; Scottish Gaelic: Loch Abar) is a name applied to areas of the Scottish Highlands. Historically, it consisted of the parishes of Kilmallie and Kilmonivaig, as they were before being reduced in extent by the creation of Quoad Sacra parishes in the 19th century; this Lochaber extended from the Northern shore of Loch Leven, a district called Nether Lochaber, to beyond Spean Bridge and Roybridge, which area is known as Brae Lochaber or Braigh Loch Abar in Gaelic. The town of Fort William is the main town and Lochaber was a distinct Province of Scotland in its own right. Lochaber is now also used to refer to a much wider area, one of the 16 ward management areas of the Highland Council of Scotland and one of eight former local government districts of the two-tier Highland

  • Lochaber (en gaélico escocés: Loch Abar) es una de las 16 áreas de gestión bajo la tutela del Consejo de las Tierras Altas de Escocia y uno de los ocho antiguos distritos de la región de las Tierras Altas. El área de gestión es una de las cinco que abarcan las áreas de gestión corporativa del Consejo de las Tierras Altas de Ross, Skye y Lochaber. Las áreas de Ross, Skye y Lochaber consisten de seis de los 22 barrios de la zona de ayuntamiento y el área Lochaber consiste en barrios, el Caol y Mallaig, que elige tres consejeros, y el Fort William y el barrio Ardnamurchan, que elige cuatro concejales.​ Cada uno de los otros barrios del área es un barrio separado. También hay una constitución en Ross, Skye y Lochaber de la Cámara de los Comunes del Reino Unido (en el Palacio de Westminster), pero sus límites no son exactamente los del área concejal. La constitución fue creada en 2005 con límites basados en los barrios en uso durante el período 1999-2007. (es)

  • Lochaber (/lɒxˈɑːbər/; Scottish Gaelic: Loch Abar) is a name applied to areas of the Scottish Highlands. Historically, it consisted of the parishes of Kilmallie and Kilmonivaig, as they were before being reduced in extent by the creation of Quoad Sacra parishes in the 19th century; this Lochaber extended from the Northern shore of Loch Leven, a district called Nether Lochaber, to beyond Spean Bridge and Roybridge, which area is known as Brae Lochaber or Braigh Loch Abar in Gaelic. The town of Fort William is the main town and Lochaber was a distinct Province of Scotland in its own right. Lochaber is now also used to refer to a much wider area, one of the 16 ward management areas of the Highland Council of Scotland and one of eight former local government districts of the two-tier Highland region. The ward management area is one of five comprising the Highland Council's Ross, Skye and Lochaber corporate management area, which is one of three Highland Council corporate management areas. The Ross, Skye and Lochaber area consists of six out of the 22 wards of the council area and the Lochaber area consists of two wards, the Caol and Mallaig ward, which elects three councillors, and the Fort William and Ardnamurchan ward, which elects four councillors. Each of the other wards of the corporate area is a separate ward management area. There is also a Ross, Skye and Lochaber constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (at Westminster), but its boundaries are not exactly those of the council corporate management area. The constituency was created in 2005 with boundaries based on those of wards in use during the period 1999 to 2007. According to legend, a glaistig, a ghostly woman-goat hybrid, once lived in the area. (en)
