Photographer's Note

Glencoe Lochan is an artificail beautiful lake surrounded by coniferous forests in an environment reminiscent of the Canadian Rockies. It is located just north of Glencoe village in the Scottish Highlands.
It was planted/transplanted from the Pacific Northwest of Canada in the nineteenth century by Donald Alexander Smith.

Donald Alexander Smith and his wife, Isabella Sophia Hardisty, moved from Canada to Scotland. Soon after their arrival, Isabella became increasingly homesick for her ancestral lands in Canada. In an attempt to abate his wife's depression, Donald Alexander Smith had this forest painstakingly planted, and granted it to her as a private refuge.

The lochan is currently under the care of the Forestry Commission, there are trails around it, with beautiful views of the lochan, the forest and the nearby mountains.
