a short drive from Stirling, Scotland's postcard scenery surrounds
Loch Lomond. Band students recognize the name instantly from a song
they all learned to play. I never took band and the name meant nothing
to me. However, I think most people know the lines, "You take the
high road and I'll take the low road." Click on this YouTube link
to hear the song and learn about the loch in the process.
No matter what
road I took, I was in Loch Lomond. It was a lovely lake . . . er,
loch. And, since there were so many boats, I wasn't the only one to
find it idyllic. After the crowds of Stirling Castle, it was so refreshing
to sit along the beach and enjoy the sounds of nature.
