Not shot, as it may look, while turning left-hand finals for runway 23, but taken from a Cessna Caravan heading west(ish) for Oban Bay and just about to overfly the runway flight path. The river is known as Black Cart Water.
Strathallan airfield, near Strathallan Castle in Perthshire, is approx 3 miles northish of Auchterarder just off the A9, almost midway between Stirling and Perth. Free-fall parachuting takes place there regularly (wind permitting) from a jump height of 12000ft. Entertaining stuff for spectators on a Sunday afternoon!
A gap in flowing early morning stratocumulus shows snow-powdered Galloway Park hills; snapped on Boeing flight, en route from Glasgow to Paphos, Cyprus, going through approx 25,000 feet (at a guess) for 34,000 feet.
The small town of Arrochar at the head of Loch Long is in the left corner, the Government torpedo range buildings (no longer in use?) at bottom right corner, with the Ardgarten 'promontory' beyond.
The seaplane tours are wonderful. We flew around the Argyll coast. The scenery from the plane is fantastic!
Ben Lomond has just been flown passed on the left, revealing Loch Lomond and its islands to the south, with Rowardennan on the left bank and the caravan site at Inverbeg jutting out on the right bank.
Aerial shot of Ben Lomond looking south, with the Luss area of Loch Lomond on the right. A group of climbers can just be picked out on the summit.
Loch Katrine is a reservoir supplying Glasgow and Edinburgh.
