Something about the colour in this image pleases me a lot. There's a kind of sharp saturation to it, it's like a visual salad of bitter greens with vinaigrette--muted, with twangy intensity. The picture is of the fire pit used for cooking and general fire goodness on the island I was visiting.
Cape Breton, like the rest of Nova Scotia (and indeed, Eastern and Central Canada) takes many of its place names from the UK and from Scotland in particular. Loch Lomond is clearly no exception to this trend. Note: There's also a Liverpool, Nova Scotia, complete with a Mersey River.
