Around thirty people, enjoying a festive break at The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel, took part in the New Year’s Day heritage walks around the Village of Luss today. With the memories of the previous nights meal and ceilidh still fresh in their minds, it was time for a breath of fresh air.
The first group suffered a little from rain showers, but the second group were blessed with dry and bright wether for the duration.
Ben Lomond, depicted in the picture below, was at its best, with the reflection of the sun’s light from its snowy cap, backlighting the participants in the fore ground.
Everyone greatly enjoyed the commentary that accompanied the walk; tales of daring do, treachery, and cattle rustling, as well as geology that help to create much of the countries history but providing a borderline between two peoples of competing cultures.
