Fall Reflections. Loch Achray. Scotland
Photograph - Photography
Beautiful autumnal reflections of the forest in the Loch Achray in early morning, Scotland.
Loch Achray in The Trossachs Scotland is about 7 miles west of Callander on the Trossachs road.
Achray is a small but extremely beautiful loch right at the heart of the Trossachs and only a mile from its larger neighbour, Loch Katrine with its famous old steamer. The south side of Loch Achray is wooded and is threaded by woodland tracks and forest roads. The forest roads are open to cars in season and are accessed off the Dukes pass between loch Achray and Aberfoyle. The tracks are also a wonderful place to take your mountain bike or to walk.
For the photographer Achray is a dream, with the woods on the south, mountains and forests to the north and the majestic crags of Ben Venue to the west. The placid waters of the loch usually offer unbelievable reflections of the surrounding scenery.
On the north shore is Ben A'an with its easily recognised pointed peak. Less than 2000 feet in height it is a fairly easy walk but with fabulous views from the top over Loch Achray and down the length of Loch Katrine.
Below the slopes of Ben A'an is the lovely little Trossachs church, where many a wedding and memorable wedding photos have taken place. Just west of the old church is 'Tigh Mor', at one time the Trossachs Hotel, but now owned by the Holiday Property Bond. Tigh Mor with its spires and turrets is a splendid building in splendid surroundings below the pointed peak of Ben A'an.
