Yesterday I ran 8K round part of this loch near to where I live, Tinytears60 asked me to take a photo, this morning on my walk with my Thursday morning walking group I took this photo of where I run, walk and cycle.

What a view, that is absolutely stunning Al, I can definitely see why you like to do your various forms of exercise there. It's so nice to see where people run/walk/cycle isn't it so thank you for sharing.

Well done on your 8k yesterday too, are you thinking you might try another 10 miles again any time soon? :-)

I am glad that you like the photo, it was beautiful yesterday morning with the mist just above the water as I ran round, next Wednesday I hope to run 12K and maybe in a few weeks another 10 miles and IF I feel up to running further, perhaps a HM.

To think of it, this place up to 1994 was just boggy land, then the council put a dam on the east side and let the water from a stream on the west side fill up with water, landscape the area, build a path all the way round and now it is a local beauty spot for people to enjoy their exercise and leisure activities.

That looks like a lovely place to exercise AM!

I agree with you Oldgirlruns, this is where among other things I run my (not) parkrun on a Saturday morning.

Not bad thanks Al. I'm definitely in for the long haul with this injury... I'd be surprised if I'm running consistently again this year but just going to do bits and pieces when I can and keep up the exercises

Wow! 😍👌 📷

Looks lovely Al - what a lovely place to run

Thanks for letting me see it 🙏🏻

I think you described it just right! Can imagine in the morning it looks even more special

That photograph is for you TT60, when you asked me yesterday to take a photo of where I ran that 8K and other runs I said I would, this morning when I was with my Thursday morning walking group I stopped to take this photo, I am pleased that you like it.

It is, a very good place to 🚶 walk, 🏃🏾 run and 🚲 bike ride, I am so lucky that it is so near to where I live.

I am lucky too, I live within walking distance from two cycle paths. It’s lovely to be able to exercise somewhere beautiful.

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to MoliJ

I fully agree with you regarding running, walking and cycling in a beautiful area, when I run short 3K's there is another, (more a pond than a lake/loch) only 10 minutes from where I live, the next time I run a short 3K I will take a photo of that scenic area with the pond.

Looking forward to seeing it. Going to post on my progress in a bit with a picture of where I run x

Looks beautiful AlMorr and looks a great peaceful place for a run/walk🌞

AlMorr

This is Broadwood Loch, I think Lochend Loch at Drumpellier is a little larger but not much more, they are about the same size but I think Lochend is a tiny bit more.

Love this Al. It brings where you run alive 😁

In the Relive video you see this loch from above, this of course is a view from the ground

Well Jell of your views! I’m a Black Country wench who has to travel for 30 mins to find somewhere that’s still a bit grey/ green 😏.

Enjoy 😉

I am glad that you like this photograph Frizzbomb67, this is the place, only a 15 minute walk from where I live, I am sure that there are nice places within a 30 minutes drive from where you live.

That beautiful.

I imagine it looks quite magical with the mist, how great to have that close to your doorstep. 😊

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to Jell6

Yesterday morning it did look very magical with the mist rising, if I had ran this morning I would have had to be very careful because for the first time this Autumn there was a frost and probably a few icy patches as well, the frost and icy patches were all gone by 8.30am

Looks an absolutely beautiful place to live AlMorr...Wow! I would never want to go anywhere else. All that wildlife!!!

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to chrissie589

There is plenty of wildlife live in this area, many swans and ducks 🦆 as well as runners, cyclists and walkers.

This looks so beautiful. (I miss Scotland so badly, having lived in Glasgow, as well as near Loch Lomond for 10 years)

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to CBDB

It takes me about 90 minutes by bus and train to get to Balloch by Loch Lomond, by car about 50 minutes.

Yeah, we lived in Dumbarton ... (sigh)... and loved it. I now think I wasted all those opportunities of running on the Clyde shore from Dumbarton towards Helensburgh. Very happy running!

AlMorr
AlMorrGraduate10 in reply to CBDB

Dumbarton by the rock, talking about Helensburgh, that is where I ran my graduation run on June 18th 2018 along the prom, I started at the pier head at exactly 10.30am, at 10.47. turned around just at the boundary at Rhu and completed the 30 minute run at that monument on the seafront.
