We went out for a drive to Loch Lomond and a walk along the shore from Milarrochy Bay.
For a change, we decided to take a scenic drive through the Trossachs and up to Loch Katrine for a an afternoon wander along the loch shores.
Loch Katrine turned out to be extremely quiet, with only a handful of cars from walkers parked in the massive car park. Unlike to usual hustle and bustle with busloads of tourists, the firmly shut tourist shops, cafe’s and boats looking more like a recently abandoned ghost town than a tourist hot spot.
We wandered out and back along the slightly uninspiring tarmac road along the North shore of the loch on what turned out to be a very bleak day. The Scots pines on the South shore and the winter colours of steep slopes of Ben Venue providing some interest.
Maggie’s Cove is a delightful cove on the South shore of Loch Tay some 5 miles East of Killin.
On a lovely Sunday afternoon we decided to leave Auchoirk slightly earlier than normal and take the scenic route back to Glasgow along the East shore of Loch Fyne via Otter Ferry rather than the much faster route via Glendaruel.
We stopped off at the parking on the shore of Lachlan Bay for a short break and a stroll along the shoreline while admiring the ruins of Old Castle Lachlan on the other side of the bay.
While wandering the shore of Lachlan Bay, we came across this wonderfully shaped piece of wood with interesting details and colourful reflections in Loch Fyne under a clear blue sky.
