How about a clue? Is it on the mainland? Which bit - east, west, north, south or middle? :shock:

Here are three clues:
1 We're on the mainland in the northwest
2 The hill in the distance at the right hand side is a Graham
3 Between where the picture was taken and the Graham is the sea, close to the entrance to a long, sweeping sea loch

Yes I am indeed :clap:

specifically, at the footbridge over the River Runie....the Graham being Beinn Ghobhlach; and the sea loch, Loch Broom...

What a great walk that is

Your go...

Thanks, I knew the terrain looked familiar but I wouldn't have got it without your clues as I have not yet walked the path. Coming East and South (not difficult!) by a 100 miles or so where is this ancient cairn?
