Although I thought this shot lacked a bit of imagination, it was still preferrable to my other shots from the night, which were symmetrically down the centre of the pier, in that oft-clichÃ©d out-to-the-vast-sea scene.
This is the rather spectacularly neon-lit Duck Bay Hotel at Loch Lomond. I tend to call it Duck Vegas, and am not a big fan (although this wee chunk of pier is alright). To have a cheesy hotel in the middle of such stunning scenery is, to me, like plonking a McDonalds at the top of the Grand Canyon. I just don’t reckon our scenery needs neon lighting and a piano bar to be enjoyed…. but then again I’m funny that way.
We travelled further up the loch last night, having left the tinkled ivories behind us… but this was the best shot from last night. It wasn’t a great trip
Still, there’s always next time…
