That's the one :clap:

A ship called the Yemassee foundered on rocks here in 1859 and broke up. https://canmore.org.uk/site/284423/yemassee-loch-bharcasaig-skye-sea-of-the-hebrides

Took a bit of research and working of angles on the map, but I like doing that.


OK, this one?

Sorry. You are in the right area, but this little body of water is not that one.

This is a Lochan, and won't have been paddled very often!

Sorry, no. Its a bit of a sneaky one to be honest, as no normal folk would have been there with canoes, its too small. We were portaging between bigger lochs. We are between 2 peaks at over 500 ft.

Yep, that's the one. Turned out to be too shallow to get our paddles in properly, so my planned group photo on the water in front of Stac Pollaidh was blown into chaos!

If nobody got it from that clue, the next one was going to be the grid ref!!

All yours.
