Wahey, I thought I recognised the hills from a very chilly day out a year or two ago, when ice floes had piled up on the shore of the lochan in the pass. Now, where are these enigmatic ruins? Clue - on an island...

This could go on and on. Inchgalbraith?

If not that, Island I Vow.

Now you're just reading off a list of all the islands on Loch Lomond ! But yes, I Vow it is. A fortification of the MacFarlanes. All very spooky, even on a warm sunny summer's day. My cunning plan to explore the chamber under the castle faltered under the overwhelming spookiness, and I figured that, as it has been explored before, what was the point in my disturbing it? Discretion being the better part of valour, I valiantly and discretely left as quickly as possible...

In my defence, both Inchgalbraith and I Vow have ruined castles, I was just saving time. :D

Where am I?

I'm on my way to two Munros, neither of which is visible, one to the right and one to the left.

No takers? This will probably make it too easy. Looking back at the first Munro of the day.

I thought this would go much quicker, they are both popular hills.
Here's a pic looking back from the approach to the summit of the second Munro.
