Not Loch na Saelga. An Teallach is unmistakable but you are looking at it from the wrong angle.

Wrong guess and still looking from the wrong angle but you are a bit closer.

well last try: Now I can't imagine any other than Loch Broom although I think that this more unlikely - as far as I remember my drives around there :think:

Not a loch that you will see on a drive. You need to walk to it and it is smaller than the lochs you have named.

It took me a while to find Home Loch, working on angles from the corries of An Teallach, and the bump between. Had never noticed it before. Despite having been in that area exactly 1 year ago, just before lockdown 1, including a failed attempt on Beinn Enaiglair.

Back with another shortly. If I can find something I haven't used...

Looks like similar terrain, but not that far north.
