Inveruglas Looking Down onto Loch Lomond

In The Eagle, this area of Inverulas that overlooks Loch Lomond served as the landscape in which Marcus and Esca first meet the Seal People. Loch Lomond, a national park about 45 minutes from Glasgow, has figured into popular imagination so much that it has become emblematic of Scotland itself. The song “Loch Lomand” contains the oft sung lyrics: O ye’ll tak’ the high road/and I'll tak' the low road/And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye.” It is likely that during Agricola’s invasion in the 1st century, ancient Roman troops occupied some part of the Loch Lomond, but there is little evidence that formal settlements were ever constructed.
