Yes - in fact I have a photo of you crossing that stream. It is in my trip report at https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=72252

Hope all is well with you! Done any good walks recently?

Spot on - a place with a wealth of archaeology, from ancient times up to recent history.

Well done - over to you!

On which loch, famed in song and story, does this island lie dreaming in the sun...?

Had originally considered it but didn't think there was a small enough island but will try it anyway - Loch Lomond ?

Yes! Up at the North end there are a few small islands, this is Eilan i-Vow, with a small ruined castle/ tower-house which once belonged to the MacFarlanes, now the haunt of otters and birds.
Over to you.
