Nope, North-East of Loch Awe.

Is it time for a clue? The inventor of the mechanical seed-drill would need an aqualung to swim like a salmon under Orion's Belt in these waters... :D

Too slow for the Aqualung clues (plee - seniority :) ), but what about Loch Lyon?

Yes! Sorry about the delay, I was up on Skye for a few days. Jethro Tull was the inventor of the mechanical seed drill and also a funky 60s-70s -80s-90s-00s metal/folk band, who did an album called Aqualung, fronted by Ian Anderson who became a salmon farmer on Skye. And did a song called Orion, on the Stormwatch album.

I have researched that place many times. One day, I will get the canoe onto those waters...but it ain't an easy journey to get there! Especially if we decide to portage up from Nevis...

Now, have I got any loch photos I haven't already used twice....

Scunnered that I missed out on getting Lochan nam Breac, a fantastic spot. You could approach it via Loch Quoich, could you not?
Anyway is your loch , Loch Maree?
