Name that Loch!

I'm probably wrong :roll: but I'd ruled out Afton, Talla and Fruid as the tree placement didn't seem right. Megget seems too big compared to the photo but will try that just in case.

That's it. Megget Reservoir taken from the dam. :clap: The apparent small size is just a function of foreshortening.

Over to you, rockhopper. :D

Clue - I'm descending from a corbett the summit of which is beyond the hilly ground on the other side of the loch

Another clue - the Corbett I'm descending is relatively remote and isn't far from the bottom of the list of Corbetts by number of walk reports

Cheers. It was your "near the bottom of the Corbetts by number of reports" bit that got me in the right place. Was a bit cloudy when we did it!
