Sailing Loch Katrine.

By Tooma
"This beautiful loch was the inspiration for Sir Walter Scott's poem, Lady of the Lake, and the novel Rob Roy. It lies in a lovely part of the country, very scenic and peaceful, and like the rest of the Trossachs, well worth visiting for a nice relaxing day out.
The loch is eight miles long, one mile wide and is the biggest of the Trossachs lochs.
Surrounded by mountains on all sides, it has supplied pure water to the city of Glasgow since 1859. The road up the side of the loch is private, owned by West of Scotland Water.".

This was a Jazz Cruise, and in spite of the mostly wet weather, it was an enjoyable couple of hours on the SS Sir Walter Scott - not the prettiest of ships with its rigidly squared cheap looking upper structure, but it got the job done, and the band were good.

A truly beautiful location and a must to visit when we next venture north of the border, Tom.

Excellent set Tom, looks like a great day out. I must agree about the Walter Scott not the prettiest but still good for a sail.
