20 September 2015 - Loch Ken, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.

This afternoon after we visited Loch Ken, for a short walk, but unfortunately the weather turned dull and wet for most of the time we were there. We had hoped to be able to cross Loch Ken Viaduct to take some photos but didn't realise it was unsafe and public access is barred.

The first photo below is a view overlooking Loch Ken followed by two views of the Viaduct which is a few miles along the old railway track from Stroan Viaduct which we visited a few days ago.

The last two photos are views along Loch Ken from the shore near the Loch Ken Caravan Park.
