No takers. here's some clues the photo is taken from Beinn a Bhacaidh and the Inverness to Fort Augustus back road runs along its shoreline.

Looks like time's up on this one, Sunset.

My only guess is Loch Ussie, near Strathpeffer?

Please, "Name that Loch".

Sorry, I posted this 2 minutes after your last post.

Looking at your clues just now.

Good memory :) . Trouble with this quiz is that I have photos in mind to use, but I can't actually remember the names of the lochs :roll: . So after going back to check the map...you are correct :lol:

Curra Lochain???


Should start cropping the photos you re-post on this sort of competiton. It is too easy to find them on google images

Maybe you'd better have another go, since I didn't play fair.

(Of course, I may have got it wrong.)

That goes for malky as well.

correct, Sgurr - over to you :D

PS - not sure how you do it as right mouse button clicking the photo on WH doesn't give me the option to search google images so assumed it wasn't possible and the flickr link doesn't show the account :?
