Yep, well done to Clive and RH for identifying the rock-type, both were way too close for me let on. :lol:

Over to you AJ...

No sorry, not there. As I'm going on holiday this evening I should probably make this easier so that it doesn't sit here for a week. The hill on the left is a Munro and the stream is flowing towards a Corbett.

In an effort to get this away in the next few hours I'm providing another picture of the loch from a different angle! It's in the cradle which is just slightly left of the centre of this picture. That's a Munro in the background too! Any guesses:

The Loch is there somewhere.

Well I need to go away on hols now so won't be able to keep this going I'm afraid. The answer was Loch na Fhuar Thuill Mhoir below Sgurr Mor, Ullapool way. ScotJamie you were the closest............... so it's over to you! See ya pals! :D

Thanks AJ
A benign way of saying I was way off the mark but the only contender!
Away on business for the next three days, and wifi signal appalling in this hotel :? , so can someone else pick up this thread for us, and post a photo please.

Shouldn't be too hard: not the actual top of this munro, but not very far from it. Which one..?

I should point out that my munro list I'm keeping on the site is nowhere near accurate :lol:

It's not, but to keep it going, you're less than 30km out :)

Heh, that would've been a great clue in retrospect but I've never been one for wordplay, sadly.

Within 25km of An Casteal. The very flat view stretching off into the distance may be a clue..

It's not, and unfortunately I'm also away from tomorrow with limited access, so I'll have to give mine up as well. It's the one-metre-or-so lower top of Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) at the end of the very short ridge from the true summit.

Anybody with a picture, you're next :)
