Name that Loch!

Loch Canaird? (or Kanaird, depending on the map). The cliffs in the background look suspiciously like Speicein nan Garbh-choireachan, the western top of Ben Mor Coigach.

This cliff looks Assynt-ish. If not BMC then maybe Cul Beg, so I'll try Loch Lurgainn?

Ok, if the clue suggests Cul Mor, then Loch Sionasgaig?

Grisu, you should have it (if we are right) as I don’t have any loch photos (except obvious ones!) left!

Thank you Tim!
I actually can take over and offer this one, from one of my walks this summer.

It is a Lochan and I can provide a different pic with the Lochan as a whole if necessary.
Enjoy
