Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

I can't even remember, to be honest :lol: It's definitely not Schiehallion, though, which was cloudy when I climbed it :) From the flatness beyond, I think it might be the first top of Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn), but I wouldn't put money on it :)

I thought so, the picture only seemed so familiar to the one I have seen in andrew11's report: return to Schiehllion after 50 years!
Schiehallion obviously likes to hide itself in mist, I was as lucky as you :wink: cheers :D

...I would not have recognize Ben Vorlich - it was completely covered in mist too :lol:

Not there - about as far away as your first guess.

Clue number 3: the summit lies just outside a national park

Based entirely on your clues, not the image, The Fara?!

Yes! I cropped it a bit to hide the Ben Alder hills but a pleasant grassy ridge and view SW.

That's the one. Ardmaddy Bay to be precise - a lovely spot.
