After a few hours of walking we made it to the summit of Ben Lomond at 974 metres above sea level. This was the view looking back south, towards the town of Balloch and the direction we had walked from. Despite this happening in April there was still a few patches of snow on the ground, as you can see in the foreground. I typically don’t include people in my photographs. This was an exception as having a person in this photograph gives it scale. This is also my best friend makes the picture more special to me personally. It was surprising to see so many small islands on the loch. From the shores of Loch Lomond I had assumed there was three or four islands. Clearly not from this angle. The big island in the foreground is Inchonaig. The furthest away, on the right is Inchmurrin which points towards the Alexandra / Balloch area.
