I think it's Loch na Sealga, but I don't know the connection with Pliny.

Not Loch na Sealga, I not aware of any connection that had with Pliny. NB the link is a saying thought to be attributed to Pliny. Rockhopper was closer.

Well I never expected to find a loch called home but there it was.

Here is the next, probably an easy one.
