Loch Lomond.

Me and Anna jumped on the train in search of some scenery yesterday.
We found it in Loch Lomond.
Hard to believe it’s only a half hour choo-choo ride from the city centre really…

Look at this pair of shifty characters:

It’s funny.
I don’t visit other parts of Scotland often.
I don’t have a good reason for it either but when you get out there and look at the likes of Ben Lomond,
It’s hard not to come over all proud and patriotic.

We took a boat out on the Loch and it took us past some of the islands.


Ben Lomond is the big thing with the snow on it but y’see that wee green island in front there?
Well that’s called ‘Murran’.
‘Murran Island’.

The Captain of the boat told us this.
He said some other things about the island but the only thing I heard was:

“On your left here, you can see the island of Murran, one of the largest of the 24 islands in the Loch and home to one of the largest nudist groups in Scotland”.

Scotland’s a funny place.

  1. Good thing I didn’t go there. I probably wouldn’t have been able to stop singing “You Take the High Road.”

  2. I was in Loch Lomond last week with my family – we took my niece to the Sea Life Centre there and had lunch and a wander.

    When I was a kid we used to have a caravan and we’d go for long weekends to Loch Lomond frequently. I loved it! My dad had a boat too and he’d take us out in it. I hadn’t been for a really long time until last week – was surprised to see a shopping centre (which actually wasn’t too unpleasant, considering)!

    It’s a lovely place.
