Re: Name that Loch!

The island has a single Corbett. This loch almost bisects the island, but not quite.

Re: Name that Loch!

Clue: There are no mountains on my side of the loch, only hills, but there is a Corbett on the other side.

Re: Your favourite golden eagle encounters

Thanks for all the lovely replies so far. @jmarkb: I'm yet to see an eagle actually attempt to take prey. Not familiar with the hill you mention, but I assume it was a mountain hare? I love the poem. "For a moment he stopped our world/Slammed shut all emotion save/Praise to the eagle". Wel...

Re: Scottish Big Five

Mountain/blue hares are a good shout, forgot about them. I've seen them in the Peak District but they're a reintroduction. My first was one sillhouetted on the skyline on Braeriach as night fell. Not sure about dippers though, as you can see them all over Britain.

Scottish Big Five

As anyone who's been on a safari will know, the African "Big Five" are the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. It may be less commonly known that this list isn't a spotting challenge to tourists, but instead refers to a hunter's most-coveted, most-dangerous list of African fauna. A...
