'The Lonely Tree' at 'Milarrochy Bay' Loch Lomond

By johnsd  
This is possibly the most photographed tree in Scotland. it is situated on the eastern side of the Loch and on the path of the popular trail 'The West Highland Way' which runs from just north of Glasgow to Fort William, a distance of 96 miles (154km). it is estimated around 30000 walk the entire route each year and 80000 walk part of it.
In winter after heavy snow fall the tree can be several metres into the loch with the water level well up its trunk.
For several years we have visited this site but not this year so far.
Such a lovely peaceful setting !

Thanks to all who viewed, V & C on yesterday's Dunnock and for the three UAs received.
All are very much appreciated.

Apparently it is now a contender for 'Tree of the Year' and it could win a care package worth £1000.
