Photographs of swans taken in July 2015 on the lovely Loch Watten in Caithness, in the far north of Scotland, and around 20 miles from John O'Groats. Loch Watten has fishing boats available and is a well known trout loch, fly only. This loch has a small population of resident swans. For larger images click on the pictures below to open the picture in a lightbox, and for even larger pictures which you can use for free (2000 x 1500) I have them on the Swans on Water section.
The following pictures were taken in 2006 using a relatively inexpensive digital camera, the quality compared to modern digital photographs is not ideal, the subject, that of swans with their young cygnets are still perfect. I hope you enjoy looking at the photographs of the swans and cygnets. For larger sized pictures visit the Swan pictures page
