No, sorry. A place beginning with K is important to this loch, but K doesn't appear in the name of the loch.

The only place at a sea loch I know which begins with a K is Kyle of Lochalsh but I can't figure our were the little ,,islands" in front of the pic could be in Loch Alsh :think: :wtf: ???

That's because there's another place beginning with K, and its not Loch Alsh. In fact, there are quite a few Kyles...
