Loch Lomond



Loch Lomond (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Laomainn), named after the famous Loch Lomond in Scotland, is situated in Richmond County, Nova Scotia, on the eastern shore of a lake also named Loch Lomond. Known for its beautiful scenery and excellent freshwater fishing and boating, it draws visitors every year.

The Loch Lomond scarf plays with the moody colours of the lake, combining them into a plaid reminiscent of Scottish cloth. Worked in one piece from one end to the other with two contrasting handpainted yarns, it captures the flavours of a northern lake, whether in Canada or Scotland.
