Earlier today, I visited the ‘Yon bonnie banks, and yon bonnie braes’ of Loch Lomond. This loch (lake) is 27 miles long and 5 miles across at widest point. It covers more than 27 square miles and contains over 90,000 million cubic feet of water, two thirds of which lies below sea level.Maximum depth is 620 feet. Quite a body of water!!

The loch is home to a wide variety of fish and waterfowl. There at least 30 wooded islands one of which boasts a resident population of wallabies.

There are opportunities for walking, golf, cycling and boating. When the weather is right a good spot for an enjoyable day out-or a longer vacation.

This evening, I am presenting some images taken just a few hours ago of Ben Lomond and the southern tip of Loch Lomond.

Ben Lomond rises to a height of 3195 feet and is known as the Beacon Hill. It is the most southerly of all the Munros ( peaks in excess of 3000 feet) and represents the very edge of the old geological fault known as the Highland Boundary.

The summit, which is easily accessed by the able bodied, comprises a fairly short, level ridge, curving gently round the head of the north-east corrie.




The above images were taken from Loch Lomond Gold Club.

This evening I am presenting some images of Loch Lomond taken today from the pier at Luss.

Loch Lomond is a freshwater loch which sits just 27 feet above sea level. It was the actions of a glacier some 10,000 years ago which created this landscape.

Loch Lomond’s proximity to the populated lowlands of Scotland means it well suited to meeting then leisure needs of recreational users of many kinds, including boating, hiking,angling and birdwatching.
