Loch Calavie? That looks a bit like An Cruachan in the foreground from a similar angle to a photo I have taken from Corrie Calavie.

Nope, a good guess but it would take Naismith 4 minutes to walk across the water from end to end on this loch, Loch Fannie would only take him 3 minutes. :D

Erm, are you going to inform the Church that Naismith was the Second Coming, or shall I do it?

You just wait until a really hard winter; you could skate across the Galloway Hills from the Solway to the Clyde. :shock:

Otherwise it is either the Second coming route or ,for us lesser mortals, a swim/kayak across. Just like Rannoch Moor.
