I think that we are in Loch Veyatie approaching the entrance to Loch a Mhadail somewhere around grid 160145.



Excellent detective work. Spot on.

I'm going to guess Loch Ba, but with little confidence.

Proper canoe that. Bell Yellowstone?

Not Loch Urigill, but a lot closer than Loch Laidon, if that helps.

Not Loch na Moine buige. Getting further away.

A clue will come soon so the answer is not beyond hope.
