Close enough, actually Voil (part of which is also in pic), and spot on with Stob a'Choin. :clap:

Looks annoyingly familiar this one, but somewhat stumped...Ballo Reservoir?

Nope a good guess, although this appears reservoir like it is named as a Loch on the OS map and is located between two Tumps.

A bit closer, it is somewhere inbetween your two guesses, south of the Campsies.

Getting closer, the Loch has the same name as one of the two Tumps next to it.

Not really up on my Tumps, but could it be in the Kilpatrick Hills (not familiar with them either)? Based on the clues, my guess is Cochno Loch (& Hill)?

A good guess but no, try south of the Clyde from there.
