Photographer's Note

Holy Loch, Argyllshire Scotland.
Photo taken at Lazaretto Point_ Sandbank.
So named The Holy Loch when Irish monks came from Ireland and settled here. around the 8 th century.

Before WW2 there were small boat building yards here,
In war time, it was used as Naval base.
It then returned to quiet area.
In 1962 the U.S.A set up a submarine naval base here till 1992.
When slowly it returned to a quiet area once again.
I believe there is going to be a boating marina here sometime in the near future.

At present as you see, as lovely area.
