Lochs: Exploring Scotland's Freshwater Lochs

Be the first to review this product

Found mainly in the Highlands the hundreds of freshwater lochs that can be seen in Scotland today were shaped millions of years ago by the erosive power of the glacial ice sheets that once covered the northern part of Britain. Their waters are rich in marine life and their shores are rich in flora and fauna - wild, remote and steeped in history, the many freshwater lochs of Scotland are among the most unspoilt and beautiful destinations to be found anywhere in Britain. Exploring Scotland's Freshwater Lochs is the first book to delve into the fascinating stories surrounding these lochs - from hidden monsters and secret islands to buried treasure and ruined castles, this book has it all. Compiled by author and photographer Julian Holland, well known for his best-selling Exploring the Islands of Scotland, this book will for the first time give an insight into the historical background and natural history of over 30 freshwater lochs. Illustrated with specially commissioned colour photographs and supported by useful location maps, the book includes details on what see and visit, walks, cycle rides, boat trips, fishing and watersports. Essential information on how to get there, car parking, accommodation, public transport and which maps to take will make this an essential tool for every loch explorer. From remote Loch Coruisk set in the Black Cuillins of Skye and the prison of Mary, Queen of Scots in the middle of Loch Leven to the sinister depths of Loch Morar and the famous monster of Loch Ness there is a loch to suit every taste in this book.
