Loch Ewe is a bay in the Wester Ross region of the Northwest Highlands in northwest Scotland . At the southeast end, the River Ewe flows into the bay, which itself flows into The Minch , part of the North Atlantic off the Scottish west coast. It has an average depth of 15 m and is up to 40 m deep. In it is the Isle of Ewe .
