Factors island loch katrine

By craggwildlifephotography  

Factor's Island, Loch Katrine. In the course of his long-running dispute with the Duke of Montrose, the well-known historical figure Rob Roy once imprisoned the Duke's factor (who acted as agent and rent collector) on this island, also known as Eilean Dharag. The stone wall was added to protect the island when the water level in Loch Katrine was raised in connection with its use as a water supply for Glasgow, which it has been since 1859. 'Katrine' derives from the Gaelic 'cateran', meaning a Highland robber.

A really lovely loch-scape which looks rather cold and wintery.
