Even if I was the only person alive on the island, I would physically have human company.

'Fraid not though you're not too far away - a little to the south. This loch and Loch Loyal both have an "A" class road running alongside them.

Loch Assynt, possibly from Canisp?

Hoping to dip my paddle in that one, or one of its neighbours, in the next couple of weeks.
