Welcome to the website for the village of Gartocharn, Loch Lomond in Scotland. The website was created for the benefit of the community in the first instance, but also for anyone who would like to see what this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

RING OF ABER
Ken Campbell, a local resident and musician, has put together a video of photographs taken by the late John Ross of Aber, Gartocharn. John spent many hours walking in and around Gartocharn, taking hundreds of the most amazing photographs reflecting his keen eye, sense of nature, and humour, and capturing the essence of this whole area through the lens of his camera.
The video was created in memory of John, his wife Christine, and friends who have also passed on: Celia Burn MBE, Captain Hugh Leitch, and Elsie Nisbet, of Aber, Gartocharn. The music 'Ring of Aber' was composed and recorded by Linsey Aitken and Ken Campbell to celebrate this wonderful part of Scotland.
