A beautifully serene photograph by Howard showing Loch Ard on a peaceful morning. Loch Ard is a body of fresh water in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park of the Stirling District in Scotland.
The loch is approximately 4km long by 2km wide and runs approximately east-west along a sheltered glen. It is considered to be the source of the River Forth and lies downstream of Loch Chon. The main island on the loch is called Eilean Gorm (Bluey /Green Island). Though one of Scotland's smaller lochs, it is one of the most picturesque and its sheltered location means it is ideal for kayaking and other water sports.
