brilliant -- thanks!

This photo is from the last walk I had -- a lifetime ago when life was normal (less than two weeks). It was an amazing day, and little did I know it would be the last one for quite some time. I'm so grateful that I ended (temporarily) on such a good note. Where am I?

I'll accept the general area (within reason), but bonus points if you can name the actual hill I'm on.

you're very close -- definitely in the general area, so I'll hand it over to you. But do you want to take another guess? It's not a Munro...

I think you are on Meall Odhar, the hill just east of Beinn Chuirn and west of Tyndrum, and the skyline is Beinn a’Chroin, An Caisteal and Beinn Chabhair ( and possibly Ben Lomond, far right?)

Thanks! We did the circuit of Beinn a' Bhuiridh and Stob Daimh last year. A lovely alternative to the classic Cruachan horseshoe :D

Next one. Which summit is this:

Clue: it is a Munro, west of the A9, part of a long ridge of several Munros.
