...close to this spot in 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie stepped foot on Scottish soil to raise the Clans and fight the English for the throne of Scotland.

But on a quiet morning you can hear the bagpipes play and imagine the clans marching down the glen to greet Prince Charles Edward Stewart.

The rest as they say is history...

I can just see him Dougie...playing the bagpipes with one and ad holding his kilt down with the other...He may also be saying what a cracking image has Dougie been out with his camera again.

Crystal clear and icy cold water running over stones - this is a stunning spot Dougie - with or without the pipers.
Thanks for your kind comments - you're right (trying to run before I can walk... Smile)

Ann that wasn't the message I was trying to send. Your work is very good without the NEED of any tricks or effects, that's quite a quality my friend.

Know this well as I worked summers as a girl friday at Glenuig and Roshven when a student! Such a spectacular and historic part of Scotland and like you I always feel the presence of the ghosts here .GillWink

Lovely glassy water and foreground detail, well captured in difficult lighting conditions.

I was up there in 2002 just after retiring (with a Light and Land holiday organised by my partners) and the scenery is quite stunning as your shot shows, Dougie.
Again the vertical format works to advantage here and you have such excellent full DOF giving crisp detail at all levels.
And sun at Glenfinnan.......quite unheard of......you'll have to hasten back when it's chucking it down.WinkWink

Gorgeous scenery, lovely clear water and like how those ripples are visible from all the rocks in the fg.

I stood there at Easter my head full of the works of John Prebble and thoughts of the '45 and thought what a tragic chain of events was set in action after the raising of the standard at Loch Shiel. The location certainly won't disappoint the romantics amongst us! Lovely image, m8
