Beyond The Known World: The Landscape Of The Eagle
Posted January 31, 2011 to photo album "Beyond The Known World: The Landscape Of The Eagle"
The Eagle showcases some of the most stunning landscapes to be found in Scotland. The following slideshow reveals where the areas actually exist.
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.
