Aye, that's it, taken a few years ago on a cracking day, from high up on Bidean nam Bian.
All yours :D

OK, staying with the sea loch theme, across which sea loch would we see these twin spires?

Right loch, but a bit before the Trotternish Ridge, those weird twin spires are on the seaward side of Ben Tianavaig, above Braes.

Of course, I stand corrected.
Next loch to follow shortly.

A rather wonderful camping spot with swimming pool.

Clue; the loch bears the name of a small, unclassified (ie not a Marilyn, Donald, Graham, Corbett or Munro) peak that overlooks it.

Sorry, I've been off on the Watershed. Next clue it is somewhere on the Watershed of Scotland. My last WR finished just before Sgurr Gaorsaic. I have now reached Fionn Bheinn so it is between those 2.

I had hoped to get my latest WR on my Watershed walk finished and that would have given you the answer but with a very slow Internet (not unusual) I am struggling to get the photos uploaded before I depart for my daughters 40th birthday celebrations tomorow. If no-one wants to have a guess I'll post the answer on Saturday and then it is anybody's go.

Indeed it is. A beautiful and remote camping spot.

Thanks Rohan

These lochans have one name on the 1:50,000. It's my tent in the mid foreground beside the first lochan. Clues in the photo.
