Loch Katrine Famous Names (PiPs) HFF

Pleasure trip boats at Loch Katrine, The Trossachs, Scotland. Pictured in the main image are 'The Lady of the Lake', and 'Rob Roy III, (also pictured in the first PiP), and the smaller boat is the Osprey private charter boat. At the rear of the image the 'Sir Walter Scott' steam ship can be seen, with a better view in the second PiP.

Sir Walter Scott which came into service in 1900, is the only screw steamer still in regular service in Scotland.

Lady of the Lake was named after the famous poem by Sir Walter Scott that was published in 1810, which was set in the Trossachs and was responsible for the popularity of the area with Victorian visitors.

Rob Roy was named after Rob Roy MacGregor, clan chief and outlaw, born at the head of the loch in 1671.

With such literary references I think my choice of music will be 'The Words' by Christina Perri

A well composed image, Carol. The figure adds a sense of scale. I love the way the walkway acts a a very effective lead-in line that takes the eye to the heart of the scene. The SS Sir Walter Scott was built just along the road from where I live. I have posted many photographs of the site of the William Denny and Brothers shipyard. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. All the best, Joe
