Glencoe Lochan @Scotland
Glencoe Lochan in Scotland is the ideal place to enjoy stunning Highland scenery in a tranquil setting. Embark on a gentle walk, take in the fresh air and nature's sight and sound around the water's edge to a more challenging hill walk or a relaxed afternoon's picnic. Smell the many varieties of flowers as you walk around the lake.
In 1895 Lord Strathcona created this beautiful lochan and woodland for his Canadian wife Isabella, who was of Native American descent. Unfortunately recreating a bit of the wild Pacific Northwest in Glencoe didn't help the homesick Isabella settle there, but it did leave a beautiful landscape for all to enjoy.
The lochan is also stocked with rainbow trout. The four easy-access fishing platforms make it an ideal fishing spot for fishing enthusiasts to spend a lazy afternoon fishing and appreciating the scenic landscape.
This picture was taken with a Canon 7D using the 16-35mm F2.8 wide-angle lens.
