Went a wander today up to a local hill loch, have never fished it previously, but was nice to get out. My friend caught the only fish of the day.
Lots of mating frogs around too.
Just seen these!
Nice views you got there, especially those old volcanic ones (at least that's what I assume they are).
Thanks. I am fortunate to live in a scenic part of the country.
As far as i know they are just formed by the uprising of the highland boundary fault and not volcanic creations as such, although i could be wrong.
If you can be bothered to look or are interested in geological stuff you might find this site interesting, i use it to find lochs with limestone (these generally produce a better size of fish)
Edit - this is what it says for the rocks in the photo
1:625 000 scale bedrock geology description: Southern Highland Group - Psammite And Pelite. Metamorphic Bedrock formed approximately 505 to 1000 million years ago in the Cambrian and Periods. Originally sedimentary rocks formed in deep seas. Later altered by low-grade metamorphism.Setting: Originally sedimentary rocks formed in deep seas. These rocks were first deposited as graded clastic sediments or turbidites in the deep sea, and then later metamorphosed, though there is evidence of their sedimentary origin.

If you want to go volcano spotting, I heartily recomend the Auvergne / Massif Centrale, which is full of archtypal volcanos (there is also a fascinating weather observatory on top of the Puy de Dome)
