There are many reasons to consider planning a holiday to Scotland during the Winter months, in fact there are many who would argue that it is the best time of year to come. Apart from the fact that it is very often cheaper, the roads and the more popular destinations are less crowded and the scenery is spectacular with snow-capped peaks and dramatic sunsets.
Photographers visit the sea lochs area all year long but winter is particularly popular. With the shorter days comes softer light, deeper shadows and fantastic sunsets. The weather may not be predictable but then again when is it? The Loch Lomond National Park, has fresh water 22 lochs which are surrounded by trees and mountains and are particularly picturesque in the winter, particularly when covered in snow or frost, with their shapes are reflected in the loch waters.
Loch Long, in front of the hotel, is one of the deepest sealochs in the area. It often provides a dramatic backdrop to any seascape composition.
And of course there are plenty of walking and cycling routes along the loch shores where you can relax and admire the scenery. What other encouragement do you need to visit and make your own visual record?
