I will risk another Harrumph and have a wild guess at the little beach at the west end of Loch Arkaig

Thanks Caberfeidh!

What is this loch? Although there is no skyline hopefully the two islands will be a clue.

Clue - although not of great size, this is a "loch" not a "lochan".

It is surrounded by Munros, although they are often climbed separately rather than in combination.
