Photographer's Note

Here is a traditional snowy photo to wish you all, dear TE members, all the best for 2013 !

BEN LOMOND (Scottish gaelic : Bein Laomainn "Beacon Mountain", probably because it is visible from afar) is situated within the "Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park".
It's a peak in the Highlands (974 m high) formed during the Cambrian era 500M years ago !

THE TROSSACHS is a lovely woodland glen in the Stirling Council Area of Scotland. Glen is the gaelic word for a wooded valley with a water course running through.(In the Trossachs, we have Loch Katrine, Loch Ard, Loch Spling, Loch Chong and several others.)
Its scenic charms came to popularity with Sir Walter Scott's 1810 poem "The Lady of the Lake".
Scott followed up with his 1817 historical novel "ROB ROY" romanticising the outlaw cattle thief born by Loch Katrine. (Katrine comes from the Gaelic "Ceathairne", a collective word meaning "cattle thief" or possibly "peasantry".)

The map shows the location of Ben Lomond itself, but I took the photo from half-way between Aberfoyle and Loch Ard (Lat. 56.181633 Long. -4.405260)
