Car park at Spectacle Loch
Car park at Spectacle Loch
To the occasional visitor, it is surprising to find no footpaths to/from the car park other than the access track. The Loch is surrounded by dense undergrowth and mixed woodland: there are no paths at the waterside. This being the case, visitors have no easy way to approach the loch. The options are struggling through waist-high grass and bracken or picking a route through the conifer plantation. One wonders, therefore, why the car park exists at all. I assume it is a fishing location and, perhaps, fishermen launch boats from which to operate rather than casting lines from the water's edge.
