Loch Garry

This is a large expanse of fresh water in Glen Garry, described as the longest and most beautiful cul-de-sac in Britain! The road follows the shores of Loch Garry and Loch Quoich for 22 miles all the way to Kinloch Hourn, at the head of Loch Hourn, a sea loch on the north-west coast. Loch Garry is known as the "Map of Scotland" as its shape at one end is roughly the shape of mainland Scotland.

Loch Garry - two of my old joined photos from a trip north in 1980!

Your photo depicts something that is definitely not "bottom of the bag" as the term cul-de-sac implies. It is extraordinarily uplifting and beautiful there!

Thank you - I would love to return there to take better photos!
