Loch Lomond, Scotland

4.5
#29 of 222 in Nature in Scotland
After a string of head-turning, critically acclaimed releases on Hush Records, Portland's Loch Lomond has brought their unique brand of raw symphonic chamber pop to locally based record label Tender Loving Empire. Loch Lomond released their much anticipated second full length 'Little Me Will Start A Storm' for release in 2011, and is currently recording new material.

The album was mixed by Adam Selzer (who has recorded all of M Ward's records), Tucker Martine (Laura Veirs, The Decemberists), Kevin Robinson (of Viva Voce), and Jeff Stuart Saltzman.

In addition to employing notable visceral and expert melodic acrobatics, the co-ed sextet of Loch Lomond distinctly incorporates the use of vibraphone, piano, guitars, mellotron, clarinet, flute, drums, bass, and other sonic treatments to foil the even more distinct and arresting voice of lead singer/multi-instrumentalist Ritchie Young. He's able to switch from high-pitched fragility to alto thunder in the turn of a phrase, yet he knows the power of restraint intuitively, saving vocal tornadoes for emotional apexes buoyed by string swells and moving arrangements.

  • Great magical place, full of mystery. Very nice Sandy Beach with ducks swimming around. The small village of Lush just on the loch is beautiful with small cozy houses.
  • Most beautiful part of the U.K regardless of the season. Lots of little villages dotted all around the Loch. This is the gateway to the highlands and there lots to do and see here. Cannot recommend enough!!
  • It's a heaven just outside Glasgow. Perfect place to spend a day or days. It's very beautiful in winters with snow all around. It's very serene. You can go on a cruise trip in the lake and can also take a boat trip. It's lovely. The place is very big and there is a trail path around the lake. It's good for climbing and hiking as well.
