My cousin and I went from Glasgow to The Munroes back in July and went past some beautiful lochs…and I seem to remember Stirling being on the way. Do you think it was this one??

Oh hard to say bud, quite a few big lochs near Stirling; Loch Lomond, Loch Katrine, Loch Voil nevermind the numerous small lochs and reservoirs like the one above. Scotland’s riddled with them!

Loch Achry has two ranges, Ben A’an to the north and Ben Venue to the west while the south is forested with loads of cycling/hiking trails, you may have passed a Go Ape centre on your way in.

But I think it more likely you hit one of the larger lochs. Any pics? :slight_smile:

Here’s one that’s likely no use, just a nice pic of water and hills!

Hmm that could be Loch Katrine but hard to say from that angle. I’m no expert on Scottish lochs though, one of the other Scots here might recognise that peak in the top left. :wink:

Awesome mate! Looks like you had a great time, at the very least you got to do some climbing in nice weather, that’s half the battle!

Reposting your fantastic photo, it belongs in here! :wink:

Pretty hard to meet all three qualifications for this restroom. Definitely made me laugh.

This is a tree near my home. It is a Moreton Bay Fig planted in 1897. The house in the foreground is designated as a historic landmark and you can see how small it is in comparison to the tree. Here is an actual link to the tree


and another with folks in the photo for scale

Oh no!!! are you being sarcastic?

I just can’t tell. The amazing thing about this tree is they actually moved a freeway off-ramp so they would not move this tree.
AND, you should see the crazy huge olive trees. Apparently San Diego County used to be the nations leading producer of olives and olive oil. So now, when I drive through my neighborhood I see many old olive and orange trees. I do love my town.

That really was a great day.
I was out of breath the whole 2 hours it took to climb…I figured I’m just out of shape, but my excuse, which is justified, is the air was just thin enough that it was making me suck wind.
I live at sea level here, so the highlands and then a 1000m mountain don’t help.

No, if I wanted to be sarcastic with you, I would’ve added:

SO GAMBLE THAT YOU WILL LOSE!!!

:wink:

No, that tree is beautiful. I love nature photography. There’s an awesome tree in Carmel that I used to climb as a kid. I am sure it’s still there, and it’s in many post cards. Looks like a giant bonsai.

I didn’t know about the olive oil legacy. I know there’s a prune packing plant here that’s a beautiful brick building, and now a super expensive commercial real estate; many offices there, pretty much for bragging rights of working out of a historical landmark.

Holy shit! That’s an awesome tree! I bet kids are over that like a rash. :wink: Just a little over a hundred years old as well…

Climbing those things ain’t easy! Ok, it’s not like scaling a vert cliff face but as you said as soon as you start hitting any altitude it feels as though your lungs are shrinking. Sadly I’m a terrible walker. ;p

That and the last bit was almost vertical…I was worried about falling when I went down so I did most of it on my ass.

This woman I saw earlier seems to have a dog sweater on her head.
