I assume you meant Loch Morar? Not this one, too far west this time.

This loch is often passed en route to a group of remote Munros :)

I can see where you are coming from, but you ventured too far north :wink:

Still too far north...

Clue 2: this loch is not accessible by car. When I wrote "it is passed en route to a group of Munros", I meant by bike or foot.

Needed the clues to narrow it down a bit!

Back in a bit with another, though getting short of lochs!
