The Loch By The Heather

Bull Loch

We took a little walk to see the Highland Coos (see last photo posted) and believe it or not the same cow was standing in the same spot! Well, okay it might have been a different one, but amusing nonetheless.

Then we continued up to the Bull Loch which is nestled in a little dip just beside a lovely little hill of heather. Even in a slightly overcast day like today it's still a beautiful sight.

Beautiful! I don't see the cow, though... :)

The colours in the pic are really nice - a warm sort of brown - looks very tranquil. I quite like these little lochans that you get in out of the way places. There is one in the Trossachs called Lochan Reoidhte (the frozen lochan) which is a very nice spot. There is actually a fascinatingly named hill lochan in Mull, up on Beinn na Duatharach (nice gabbro outcrops there!) The lochan is called "Lochan nam Ban Uaine" - the lochan of the green women. Green with jealousy? Or maybe a reference to fairies? Who knows - its a rmote and lonely spot anyway! Cheers! MM
