An Lochan Uaine - Cairngorms
An Lochan Uaine or in English the green lochan is set amongst ancient Caledonian pines on the path from Glen More to the Ryvoan Pass. Looking anything but "uaine" in this shot, showing how light on water can determine the colour but I can assure that it is green when viewed from a different location on the shoreline. No one seems to know the reason for the green colour but it is possible that it comes from the trees lying along the loch floor.... legend says that the water is green because the pixies used to wash their clothes in the loch.....believe which ever version you want!
