"Along Loch Lomondside"

By RonnieAG
A view along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond towards Ben Lomond (our most southerly Munro) on a mild but overcast day in mid October.

I'm glad Santa's Cabin raised a few smiles and I thank all for the witty repartee in response.


{For Information: Munros are Scottish mountains of 3000ft. (914.4m) or over, the highest being Ben Nevis. They were named after Sir Hugh Munro who first catalogued them in 1891. Mountains between 2500 and 3000ft. are known as Corbetts and those between 2000 and 2500ft. Grahams.. The highest point in this image (just to the left of centre) is Ben Lomond, the most southerly of all the Munros, and the flat ridge to it's left, an outrider from the main mountain, is known as Ptarmigan}

Perfectly composed, Ronnie, the sky looks rather ominous though, as though it were ready to dump some more water into the loch Smile Carol
All calm on the Loch again Ronnie.

A very lovely scene, Ronnie, with a moody sky looming up Smile Interesting write-up - I'd heard of Munros, but not Corbetts or Grahams Wink

Grey and overcast but some lovely light finding it's way on to the foreground. My son who lives in the USA came over a few weeks ago and walked up Ben Nevis. Climbing mountains and going to football matches are always on the agenda when he visits.

I really like the light catching the trees, and the spctacular veiw beyond the loch

Thank you too for the information on the various names for your peaks. The last time we were in Scotland we climbed Ben Nevis, but found we could not walk for two days afterwards..... Tongue
