I took a walk and a photograph of Loch and Ben Lomond this morning, this is where I ran run 3 of week 4 of C25K in May 2018, lovely morning for a walk up Loch Lomond side.

Beautiful weather today for October AlMorr. Hope you enjoyed your walk. Nice photo😊😊
Absolutely stunning AlMorr, I don't blame you for revisiting it. Just wonderful.
I hope you had a lovely walk and thank you for sharing the photo
It is very nice to live so close to beautiful places like this, however, in the peak season in the summer many of the people who live locally complain that there are too many people visiting this area, this morning it was lovely with only a few dog walkers.
One of my favourite places in the whole world! Stunning pic 👍
Lovely photo. It's good to make the most of any good weather
Beautiful photo Alan.. I would love to revisit Loch Lomond.. I was last there, on a sailing boat, on holiday, in my teens so around 50 years ago! Fabulous part of the world..😊
That's beautiful, Al!
Great pic, I was in Glasgow today for work and couldn't believe how nice the weather was for this time of year.
Very nice photograph AlMorr
Yes, I think part of LEJOG goes up part of Loch Lomond side, up part of the A82 which is on the west side of the loch, this photo is on the east side of Loch Lomond.
That’s a beautiful photo AlMorr and nicely composed to boot! What a perfect place for a walk and a trip down memory lane 🙂
It does bring back a lot of memories to me, back in the severe winter of 1961 the loch was frozen with thick ice and I had a little walk on the thick ice, that is the only time that has happened.
Beautiful photograph. What a lovely place to run AlMorr. The scenery would be different every day. I completely agree about the over crowding in Summer - too many people....and sometimes midges! 🤣
Midges are a curse in the West of Scotland, the month of May is the best time to avoid them, perhaps also later in September or October.
I ran run 3 of week 4 of C25K around some of the adjacent park in May 2018, in October 2018 when I was visiting the same place there was a junior 1K cross country event taking place in that park, nothing today, this morning there were only a few dog walkers.
Really like the photograph. Have walked the mountains a few years ago now. Relatives in Edinburgh gives way to accessing the Highlands. How did you get the photo to download? I’m having problems with my iPhone as it won’t recognise my photos.
I am glad that you like that photograph I downloaded it on my Android Smartphone by going to C25K, then write, photo and post.
That is so beautiful.
It is grumpyoldgirl, I hope you are still enjoying your running 🏃🏾.
Sadly, I am on the Injury Couch since I broke my ankle in June. It's healing well though, and the physiotherapist thinks I'll be able to run again. Just not yet!
Sorry about your injury, you may have to start again with week 1 of C25K as you have now been off running for about 4 months, I hope it won't be long before you can run again.
Oh that's lovely. We visited Milaroccy Bay at the end of August in our motorhome. Stayed three nights, it rained all the time we were there! And it was busy. We plan to go back to Scotland next year 🤞 when it's not so busy 😊
Oh, AlMoor how amazing 🤩!! You lucky man😃. Thanks for sharing! ❤️
It won't be too long before you run with Lejog along the A82 by Loch Lomond, it's about 565 miles into Lejog from Land's End.
Oh wow! That photo is stunning!
I am glad that you like it Timotea, I watched a video of a famous Scottish singer many years ago singing traditional Scottish Folk songs including the famous song Loch Lomond, the video was taken at that exact location by the side of the loch that I took that photograph.
I am just about to start a water colour course and would love to have that scene as one of my paintings. Would it be possible to email me the original ?
😍👌 stunning Al
It is the best photo I have taken at that location for many years, I deleted a few other photos as this one is the best, I suppose it was all to do with the weather, clear visability, calm water and the Autumn colour's on the nearby trees.
If you look very carefully, just to the left of center of the photo there is a plane, I think its a seaplane which sometimes lands on the water, it was circling around and eventually landed but I had gone away by that time.
Al that is stunning, I saw the photo earlier when work was going bad and took a sneaky look at my phone, the photo uplifted me so thank you,
I remember driving there on the way to visit sister who lives on one of the western isles
I am glad the photograph uplifted you when work was going bad, to get to the Western Isles you would drive up the A82 which is on the west side of the loch, that gets you to places like Fort William, Oban, Mallaig or Inverness.
We have a hilarious story, we needed the ferry from Skye to Harris, but the sat nav in the dark after driving from the south coast of England took us to the Ferry port to Skye, we realised our mistake and drove back at dawn towards Fort William to then drive over the bridge to Skye, saw many red deer, arrived just in time and so tired when we got out of the car our legs nearly collapsed, ate a delicious breakfast on the ferry and recovered well
Scotland is totally beautiful
Beautiful ❤️ I’ve never been there but would LOVE to go ....... if I would be allowed as a boring tourist 🙄🤦♀️😂
Lovely photo AlMorr what a great place to run, I bet the air quality there is great and that view is stunning.
You live in a beautiful spot Al, and so calm and peaceful. Thank you for sharing
It is a beautiful spot, I don't actually live in that area, it's about 26 miles from where I live, easy to get to by bus, car or train...or a marathon run.
