Loch Fyne and Inveraray III
This will probably be the last set from my trip to Inveraray and Loch Fyne, because knowing there’s pics to sit in edit is not helping my motivation to go out and get some new shots, which is bad enough because of the terrible summer we’re having in terms of weather. Even for Scotland it’s been bad… We had about of a week and a half of sunshine a few months back and it has rained literally almost every day for the past month. Fun times. Still There’s plenty to photograph at night in Glasgow when the weather isn’t so important so I should probably get out again with the camera sometime soon.
The top pic is of Loch Fyne from up the top of a (fairly steep) hill we climbed on the first day, and we were lucky enough to get nice warm, if a little cloudy, dry weather. Inverary is that tiny little town next to the loch. Just below the town is Inveraray castle, which has to be the most ‘fairytale’ looking castle I’ve ever seen.
The second is a picture of the bridge leading into the town over one of the rivers that flows into the loch. The hill is the same one we climbed the day before, we were just next to the little watchtower you can see at the top. The weather on the second day wasn’t quite so good.
The third is of the pier at Inveraray harbour, where there seemed to be people fishing the whole time we were there, even when it was pouring down with rain and foggy. The loch must be teeming with fish because we saw a good few people catch something, as well as a couple of seagulls and a heron managing to catch their dinner as well.
The fourth is just one of the small fishing – style cottages in the village. I wished I’d gotten more pictures of the village itself but I got a bit carried away with all the scenery around it instead. I suppose it’s another reason to visit again.
