Outstanding 'photo trip from Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands to Loch Lomond

      (Above image is a capture of the resident stag at Kings House Hotel, Glencoe.)

This morning, at dawn, I awoke to see a near full moon hanging over the mountains in Glencoe, Scottish Highlands.This proved irresistible, prompting me to rush out and obtain a series of images which look fine.

After breakfast I was due to check-out but was advised the light overnight snowfall had caused a blockage where the hotel's private road joined the main highway, a situation not helped by the malfunction of the hotrel's own snow plough. 

I went up to assist the clearance, taking pictures on a local Red Deer stag en-route,. Once traffic was flowing again I returned to the hotel and managed to secure some snowscape images on the way.

Next, I commenced my return to Glasgow crossing Rannoch Moor, where I stopped for more images, and then avaialed of a refreshment stop at Tyndrum.

Next, on to Glen of Orchy (valley of the River Orchy) where in navigated along a very wintry, single track road to my destination of the Falls of Falloch which I had not visited for about 15 years. This proved worthwhile.

Next, back to the main road and on through Crianlarich to the Falls of Falloch which are situated near to the northern end of Loch Lomond.

Penultimate stop was at the village of Luss on Loch Lomond where I obtained some more good images and a video in excellent light conditions.

Overall, an excellent day.
