A misty evening at Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond is Scotland’s largest lake, and in all probability, its most famous, featuring prominently in local folklore and a star fixture of regional identity and culture. It stretches for almost forty kilometres, from the suburbs of Glasgow to the farthest reaches of the craggy Highlands, transforming from a genteel island filled broadwater to a churning, windswept gulch sandwiched between forbidding mountains. Glens and woods on either side offer ample opportunities for hiking and camping, making it an especially popular getaway in the summer months. The winter sees its fair share of storms and far fewer travellers, but lends the place an eerie beauty.
