Hero and Loch Lomand

"I could swim Loch Lomond and be home in half an hour." That's a song line in one of my favorite musicals Brigadoon. It's about a mythical town in Scotland. I realized how accurate it was on our tour to Loch Lomond.
It was a hero tour as well. We went to Sterling (which sounds so much neater when you say it with a Scotish accent). We also went to a battlefield (that's right, momma, a battlefield) where the Scottish people won their independence from the English. We went to a monument for William Wallace as well. The real William Wallace just like in Braveheart. There is so much to tell about that, but not enough time.
Loch Lomond was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. We got there right at sunset (3:30/4:00) and our tour guide, Penny, (a gem) took us up a mountain to get a good view of it. The colors and clouds in the sky were reflected in the still waters of the loch. There were sheep grazing on a hillside of green grass. The air was cold and brisk. My camera was working overtime. I will put up pictures so everyone can enjoy it too. If you ever get a chance to go, do it!
