Hand-picked local events by the Lochend team, based on things we love 😍 28/6-2/7/17, through the day Edinburgh Film Festival World renown festival’s in Scotland’s capital kicks off with the Film Festival. Close to Victoria’s heart this is an extravaganza, from documentaries to world premiere’s, most notably, for me, this year Stanley Tucci bring his newest directorial […]

Frame That Picture

An arty moment over took me on a beautiful late summers evening! Ben Lomond deserves to be framed by nature!

World Cup Not Over at Lochend

So they may have wrapped things up in Brasil but, in the rain, our multi-national, co-ed youth footballers are living the beautiful game!  

A Running Theme?

Different set of characters today but just as funny. Wandering minstrels really, and when I called to ask their Dad to ask if I could exploit their sweetness, he thought I was calling to tell them to stop interupting the peace and harmony of Lochend! Particularily love the music and dummy hand!

Early Summer Sunshine

At last, as we offically entered summer last week, you can ‘feel’ it. There’s warmth in the sunshine, things are beginning to grow and that hazy, feel-good factor is engulfing Lochend. Ain’t life sweet!

Spring Half Term

A perfect combination for Spring half term, crunchy ice and sparkling sunshine. Ducks being well looked after and the rest of the birdies are getting very vocal!

At last! this weekends summer sunshine has let the flowers bloom in the riot of colour we’ve been waiting patiently for! the bees then move into overdrive, Lochend was surrounded by a low hum.

The Peacock Strut

Now there’s something you don’t see everyday when going to the bank…in Callander! Nobody knew where he’d come from but the general opinion was eascapee from Blairdrummond safari park!!

Summers Evening Swim

Where did July go! We had some lovely weather leading to lots of swimming in the lake, some out to the crannog in our bay, some as far as the island and one round the island 3 times!! She is in training to swim Loch lomond! Picture is from last Saturday evening.
