I wasn’t really expecting to get that. I’ve only ever seen(!) this loch in the dark.

Anyway, I’ve not many to choose from so an easy one. Where’s this?

Told you it was easy.
This was our first walk together for 2.5yrs!! The joys of a young family. Was lovely to be out.
Over to you.

Cheers, The Watershed (of Scotland) is basically the left handside sky line in your photo and I remember painfully hobbling down past the loch after 5 days of walking along the Watershed in sopping wet socks.

This should be fairly straightforward.

Thought it would be snapped up. It is near a bothy and is between two much larger bodies of inland water.

Too far south and less remote than the one I have posted...although Loch Restil is currently cut off from the east following the latest landslip. The 2 inland bodies of water are a loch and a reservoir not sea lochs.
