Yes that's the one - a wonderful area to walk on the hills or in the glens. Love it there.

It's your turn.....

Thanks :D I had to check the shape of the loch on the map - I have never seen it from above, it was always cloudy when I climbed in that area :lol: :lol:

This one should be easy... a large loch:

A bit further north :D
The hill in the background is a lower top of a well known Munro.

Stunning photo!

Loch Allt an Daraich (“lunar Lochan”) on Meall a Ghublais?- with Ruadh Stac Mhor of Beinn Eighe in the background?

Thanks!

A slightly unusual one, hopefully it will be interesting for readers. I'm hoping that someone can recognise this loch by the hill it is reflecting.
