Loch Lomond

Loch Lomand

Loch Lomand

The second day we set off to explore more of Loch Lomand..  This loch is one of the largest Fresh Water lochs in Scotland and is around 25 miles long  around 39 Km.  There are numerous small islands too within the Loch itself I believe our guide on the boat said around 30 . Loch Lomond and Trossachs area of Scotland was awarded National Park status in July 2002. And you can see why this beautiful land needs to be preserved in its natural state.

There was no better way to explore the length of Loch Lomand other than an hour long excursion on a cruise boat.  So off we sailed and below are the views we saw along the way.

This wonderful house is called Cameron House

In front of it sat a small sea plane, which we saw take off, if you click the link on Cameron House you will find out more about this House which eventually was bought and turned into a luxurious Hotel.

Further along in our cruise we passed the Maid of the Loch moored up to the Key-side.

This is the last paddle steamer built in Britain. Once upon a time Paddle steamers would be on the loch dating back to 1818.  This one was loving restored. It is now open to the public as a venue in which weddings can take place and a Tea-room where visitors can have refreshments.  She officially was placed on the UK “Designated Vessels List” which recognises vessels of “Substantial Heritage Merit with Local and regional significance.

After our cruise we walked through a large shopping area and walked to the edge of the loch where the Maid of the Loch was moored up.

You can see in the space of that couple of hours how the sky began to clear and it was beautifully Sunny for the rest of the day. This was how each day was while we were in Scotland. Beginning with cloudy mornings which by midday the Sun was shining through.

We sat here many a while soaking up the Sun and the view.

We watched a family use their own peddle power out into the loch on this beautiful day.

We watched a family under their own steam row out into the loch on this beautiful day.

And enjoyed watching the gulls sunny themselves too in the shallows.

I hope you enjoyed this tranquil journey as much as we did. Next time will be the Ferry ride out from Oban to the Isle of Mull and what a beautiful calm day that was , and the views not to be missed. 

Have a wonderful week, I am still in the process of catching up with you all so hope to see you all soon. 

Love and Blessings

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
