Stunning pink and purple hues fill this image as the sun begins to break on a peaceful morning over the calm waters of Loch Achray. Loch Achray is a small freshwater loch 11 kilometres west of Callander in the Stirling district of Scotland. The loch lies between Loch Katrine and Loch Venachar in the heart of the Trossachs and has an average depth of 11 metres.
The south side of the loch is wooded and well served by woodland tracks and forest roads. The loch is popular with anglers who fish for brown trout. Loch Achray is well known for its sheltered location, giving rise to placid waters offering magnificent reflections of the woodland to the south, the mountains and forests to the north and the majestic crags of Ben Venue to the west.
