Visit to Killin
We usually visit Killin at least twice a year January and May. It is a historic village and the ancient burial ground of Clan McNab is accessed via the old Killin Bridge. Wikipedia has this to say about the village “The west end of the village is magnificently sited around the scenic Falls of Dochart, the main street leading down towards the Loch at the confluence of the rivers Dochart and Lochay. The falls are crossed by a narrow, multi-arched stone bridge carrying the main A827 road into Killin.” The charm of Killin is the villagers and their community spirit. As I said we go at least twice a year, January to see their pantomime and May to support the Killin Komedy Festival. This trip was also a proving trip for my recent acquisition a new Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR.
Our route takes us past Loch Lubnaig – a very picturesque loch. The loch has a remarkable mirror reflection, provide the conditions are right. It is one of our regular stops:

Susan – My Partner
I like this picture as it shows Susan’s remarkable outlook at life. Hard to believe she is recovering from a serious fight with cancer and at the time of this picture was still waiting the all clear. ( Which she got later in the year)

Falls of Dochart
I suspect one of the most photographed water falls. I have several pictures of the falls in various states this was a first as I managed to cross to teh centre without getting my shoes wet! The main channel flow was that abated.
