I wasn't hundred percent sure on the second structure, but I did a similar thing with the view from the trig point on a previous Where Was I post!

Given you travel over much of the Highlands, your territory is pretty big! But no, I wouldn't consider it to be "your territory" as it would take you an hour or two to drive to the nearest road head. So its not Loch B a M.

Remember I'm a paddler, so might not necessarily be on the mainland shore...

Not Shiel, but right side of the country.

Off to the hills for a couple of days so apologies if I don't reply for a bit.

Closer, but not Moidart. A big inland loch, but not far inland!

That's the spot. We were camped on An t-Eilean Meadhoin, middle island. Wonderful spot.

A bit different looking east from just round the corner!

No, but we are on the western side of the mainland.
Additional Clue : I am looking SW in that image.
