Exploring the Eastern Shore of Loch Lomond from Appletree Cottage
On a beautiful clear sunny day we drove for a a few minutes up the east side of Loch Lomond from Drymen to the pretty Sallochy Bay for exercise in the fresh air.
A jetty north of Sallochy Bay looking south.
Sallochy Bay is just a couple of miles past Milarrochy Bay which we visited in the mist and fog. (see blog)
From the car park we walked north across the foot bridge over crystal clear waters of the Allt a'Mhuitinn burn past a couple of picnic tables which in this area are built with a steel plate to hold a disposable barbecue. We followed the tree lined footpath hugging the shoreline which forms part of the West Highland Way.
At this time of year, one is able to see the buildings of Glasgow University's Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment station discreetly hidden up on the hillside. Down on the shore at this point an attractive jetty runs out into the water beside a small pumping station. At any other time of year, they would be hidden from the view by foliage.
