Loch Lubnaig, lying adjacent to the road between Callander and Strathyre, lies in a spectacular setting at the foot of Ben Ledi. There are, however, comparatively few accessible viewpoints and those will, almost inevitably, be tourist-infested during the spring, summer and autumn. In the late autumn, however, there is no better place to be for an early morning photoshoot as the tree colours on the western side, lit by the rising sun, are something to behold - particularly if there is a sprinkling of snow on the upper slopes.

Since this was written, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park authorities have decided, in their wisdom, to commercialise two of the principal access points and to restrict access to the working hours of the park rangers. Thus, there is now no access for those of us who prefer to carry out our photography during the more picturesque "golden hours". Perhaps this is confirmation of the widely-held axiom: "That which the Gods wish to destroy, they first turn into a National Park."
