Name that Loch!

I'd already written off Loch Hope and glossed over Meadie as I hadn't noticed it had an island. Your clue put me back on track.



This one?

It took me a while, but I suddenly realised why the view felt so familiar. Glances out of the car window whilst driving along the A82 over the last 30 years!


OK, what about this one. The end of which loch?

Clue time.

The river shown here, flowing into this loch, is less than a mile long, and links two lochs which could be described as long and thin.

Here's two lochs and you need to take a ferry (unless you live there).
