Might its waters impart a peaty taste to a well-known drink produced nearby?

Edit: Forget that, I don't think this is where I thought it was!

Is it on an island? I'm going to look stupid if I'm wrong so I'm being cagey...

Possibly Loch an t-Siob or however it's spelt?

Oooh, post some pics somewhere. I've never been to Jura, but the west coast is miles clear at the top of my to-do list and I've read so much about it I reckon I could navigate it with my eyes shut. It's just hard to get to without a car.

Right, wherezis?

No, but that's very close to being correct!

It's near a bothy. One of the routes to the bothy passes this loch on the west side.

Loch Doire a' Ghearrain, on the way to Paenamanach on the coast of Moidart ? Lovely, lonely spot.

Nope, although that does look a nice spot.

Yes! A short walk from Suileag bothy. The sort of place you can't imagine bumping into anyone else.
