Beyond the Shrouded Horizon is the twenty-first studio album by English guitarist and songwriter Steve Hackett.

Background and recording[edit]

"Loch Lomond" is named after the loch of the same name in Scotland. Hackett described the track as blues-influenced which changes to European music once the strings are heard. The lyrics contain many contradictory imagery, such as a Hummingbird in the snow. Though the song contains what sound like bagpipes, Hackett revealed that the sound is in fact a mix of bagpipe samples and a saxophone with the reed "turned around the other way".[2]
