Cheers. Binnien is very distinctive.



How about this smallish loch near some bigger ones.

A little while back I read your account of your trip to Loch Maree and I immediately thought of Loch Kernsary when I saw your photo and it fitted with your description of that trip and my own memories of a walk there. Like you I need to "top up" my lochs but here is one that may be slightly confusing as due to the light conditions and as it was taken with a mobile phone, the background is missing. (I couldn't even get back in photoshop).

Clue. I am on a very popular ridge and the "hill" in the background is actually the shadow one of the hills on that ridge,

You're on the South Glen Shiel ridge, somewhere near Bealach Sgurr an Lochan, looking over the lochan in Coire an Lochan (from above the pass of the peak of the lochan over the lochan in the corrie of the lochan!) towards an invisible north Glen Shiel Ridge.

Hah. Might prove harder than the puzzles themselves!

I think I'm running out of lochs too...
The island in the loch is a clue, as is the castle window...
