Canoe Safari on Loch Lomond

Yesterday we enjoyed the company of 22 students from USA on a series of short trips on Loch Lomond. Starting from Luss (Village of the herbs), each group paddled south towards Fraoch Island.

En route they were ‘treated’ to a rendition of the Loch Lomond song, ‘By Yon Bonnie Banks’ with an explanation of its origins; provided with historical information on several of the islands; and had an opportunity to see some of this season’s young aquatic birds which visit the Loch’s shores.

With a wee bit of Scottish history and heritage thrown in it allowed the groups to get a real feel for the Scottish highland countryside and culture.
