I can see why you might think it's that particular lochan, but, not this is not it.

It's a good bit further west and north...

Had a hunt back to one my reports from last September with a lochan with sand -
could it be Lochan Fèith Mhic’ –illean ?

Sorry, been away for a few days in the Highlands.

No, t'ain't Mhic-illean.

And t'ain't Costa del Sol :) .

The nearest serious hill (in elevation terms) is a Corbett.

And it's a long way north and a long way west...

Bingo! That's it. Really a very attractive lochan, no?

Cheers - yes, came across it when planning routes for the Fisherfield corbetts last year and think I caught a glimpse of it between the two Chaisgeins but hadn't realised it had a sandy beach until doing more digging (pun unintended...)

This loch shouldn't take long......
