Clever. Could that be the Queen's Well, below Mount Keen? I haven't been there, but seem to remember it has six pillars. Haven't seen the plug hole effect on other photos though!

The mountain in the background is normally viewed from the other end, from where it is a more familiar and recognisable, shape.

My left foot was pretty close to being IN Loch a Bhraoin, I think! It was certainly along the loch shore path somewhere.

The furthest away summit is a Munro. I was standing about a mile from a main road, but not on a well-used route.
