L O C H L U B N A I G

A few weeks ago we took a day trip north to the village of Killin at the Falls of Dochart, at the western edge of Loch Tay. As we drove north, the landscape became ever more dramatic. At one point on the journey, we drove along the banks of Loch Lubnaig. The traffic was steady so we couldn't slow down, but I shot a quick (and bumpy) video out the car window, looking through the trees to the loch.

I know, bumpy! But there was just something about this drive. I wanted to capture this moment, this spot. It was beautiful. We drove past the Glen Ogle Viaduct too.

We spent a few hours in Killin (that's for another story) and left as the rain set in. It was pouring as we drove back south. We wanted to stop at Loch Lubnaig, and we were lucky - there was a break in the rain that lasted just long enough to park and walk by the loch's edge. The light was fading. There were a few other people around - there's a campsite here - so it wasn't silent, but the water was so peaceful.

The green hues felt rich and intense after the rain.

Harris is used to the sea, so he was surprised to be able to paddle and drink.

    Question, how old is the viaduct? And the Loch looks like a mirror. Makes me want to visit. Thank You

  • copperline

    @Peiper2007 So, in Googling this viaduct I discover its name (yes, should have done this before!). It's the Glen Ogle Viaduct. From what I can see, constriction was granted in 1865 and the trains started on this line in 1870. Now the viaduct is part of a walking route. The loch was incredible. The air was heavy with rain - it started again as we left - so the light was shifting all the time. The loch was incredible.

    California had dirt paths in 1870! Loch looked mystical

    Thanks for sharing @Steller ✌🏻️ and I think this is my first ever Action + Outdoors moment! πŸŽ‰

  • copperline

    Honestly Ann, we were there for half an hour until the rain started again, but it was just *magical*. There were a few people around unpacking their cars for the campsite, but still, the peace looking out across the loch and watching these little wisps of mist floating around above the trees. @annld60

    Green seems even more intense , as the water of the lake. good choice of music, very suitable! (❀️ pag 12)

  • copperline

    Ah thank you @leontine πŸ™πŸ» (my favourite shots are always the ones with Harris and I have to resist filling a story with them!) You're right, the green was so intense after the heavy rain - and it was just about to start raining again. It was in the air, so the light was moody. I didn't want to lighten these photos but just let it be. And LOVE that music. Stumbled across ages ago on a Spotify playlist and it's so perfect for this kinda moment.
