North of Loch Earn.

Not Loch Ness either but closer than Loch Earn.

Too far north.

It's south of Loch Garry also.

Edit Sorry I should have said it's south of the Loch Garry near Invergarry - I think that's the one you meant. :?

I don't think it is Loch Lochy, when I remember right we just had it not long ago.
And I leave out Loch Eil for the same reason
From all possible option, I don't know why, but I opt for Loch Morar now :think:

OK, as Grisu hedged around Loch Lochy without absolutely suggesting it, I'm going to say Lochy, as its pretty much the only loch closer to Arkaig than Morar. And it it is, Grisu, you can have a go!

Cheers Mal, Loch Lochy it is and Grisu did mention it as you say.

Grisu, it is Loch Lochy, taken from the stony beach at the Letterfinlay Lodge looking down the Great Glen towards Fort William.
All yours. :D
