Thanks Skyelines. We're RSPB members, was certain we'd been there before and are up there most years on holiday......just couldn't quite place it

What's the name of this loch ?

I knew it looked familiar but it wasn't until you posted your beautiful photo for this month's photo comp that I realised why, Not that I had such good conditions as you in June 2015 when I walked in from Corrie Haille over the Beinn Deargs (camping at the col) before continuing the next day to Beinn Chaisgein Mor, my last Corbett. I walked out over Beinn Chaisgein Beag and then went cross couuntry to pick up the path on the NW side of the Inverianie river to my van parked at Gruinard Bay. It was a wet and slippery trudge. I had caught the bus round to Corrie Haille the previous day. The forcast had been good or a few days and it was until the evening the first day when the wind and rain came in . I had no views on BCM and had to reach the summit of it and BCB by compass bearings. A year later Cnoc Coinniich was promoted from Graham to Corbett status so I hadn't truly finished. I have now!
Back to the comp. Where is this.Image_MG_9469 lonesome pine by Seal54, on Flickr
