    Default A weekend on Loch Ard and Loch Achray

    Having spent Easter with the family on a caravansite near Aberfoyle, I decided to leave the caravan at Cobleland site, right onthe river Forth.
    The Friday Easter after saw me knocking off work at12.30 and off I was back up to the Trossachs. Amazingly, cragger, who had leftTeeside at (supposedly) 11.00, came around the Rob Roy Motel roundabout outsideAberfoyle just behind me.
    After sorting out everything for the night weheaded over to Loch Ard ............ I'll let the pics and clips talk forthemselves, save mentioning that it was nice to finally meet Bandy.
    Hope you enjoy it as much as cragger and I did

    To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

    I wish that cragger would have taken photos more often to get all the season's caught!!! One just can't get the personnel
    Loch Katrine and Venachar are on next ! Or all 3 of them in one (if my legs ever get used to kneeling LOL)
    Nice to have finally met you!

    Finally got to see this as I've now got a computer that works. This advanced human technology is too much for me!

    Great stuff, Ingo.
