Loch of the Lowes lies in the beautiful scottish borders between Moffat and Selkirk. It flows into nearby St Mary’s loch (with its thriving sailing club) past old Tibbieshiels inn, hostelry and overnight stop for walkers on the southern upland way crossing Scotland.
Overlooking the north end of the loch is a monument to James Hogg – the Scottish Poet known as the Ettrick Shepherd, friend and contemporary of Sir Walter Scott.
Taken 4/3/08 (untouched) with a pocket fuji finepix A500 . An incredible 5000+ views on 12/4/10! how unbelievable and amazing is that!! Also a first mounted print sale to a lovely pal in Oz!!
(There is a 2nd loch of the lowes further north in Perthshire, complete with osprey viewing centre – but you can see the wonderful fish eagle hunting here too if you are lucky!)
My first ever feature on the home page ages on 23rd April 2008 and what a party that was…LOL
