Sea lochs and sunsets: a Scottish photoblog

Ben Lomond

I’ve visited the west coast of Scotland many times in the past ten years, and I never tire of the dramatic scenery. Loch Lomond is a great area to stay, but there are also many lovely villages along the sea lochs.

Thanks to the Gulf stream there are hundreds of rhodedendrons blooming in May.

The drive up through Crianlarich, across desolate Rannoch Moor and into Glencoe is one of the most beautiful anywhere in the world.

May sees the Trossachs (Rob Roy country) fresh and green.

One of the best sunsets I ever saw was here, over Loch Lomond a few years ago.

It’s a lovely part of the world… I’m always happy to return in Spring.

How easy is it to visit?
Really easy to get to Loch Lomond from Glasgow! A one-hour train journey takes to you to Balloch at the southern end of the loch. There are also connections via Helensburgh to Crianlarich. Local buses serve most of the smaller villages but check the frequency if you’re without a car!
