Another misty January day here at Appletree Cottage and Shandon Farm. So we hop in the car and head up to Milarrochy Bay, just past Balmaha on the east shore of Loch Lomond and about 15 minutes away. The car park is nearly empty and just a handful of people have come to exercise here..
As we arrived the mists were beginning to clear. Looking to the north the sun was beginning to warm the hills
Milarrochy bay is a hugely popular place for swimmers, sunbathers and paddlers in the summer. However hardly a soul was to be seen there today.
The moorings and pontoons at Balmaha were frozen over but the ice nearest the shore had been broken - perhaps by the ducks which seemed very keen to greet us!
After our brief stroll down to the passenger pier it was back in the car and return to Appletree Cottage and Shandon Farm.
