Thanks - only been up there once but thought I recognised it and a check on the map confirmed.

Not sure if this one is easy or hard. The hill might be recognisable but I would be amazed if anyone knew the loch by name without a map check.

What is the name of the loch on the right?

Looks like North Lee in the background so will guess at Loch Langais leading into Loch Euport

Correct!! - Easy then.

Not sure your hill is correct - I would say Eaval. Either way you are right. This pic is taken on the path that continues round from the stone circle. We went looking for otters and found them. Taken in June last year. Beautiful part of the world.

Over to you.
