In Sgurr's absence, I'm going to submit this picture.
I'll be impressed if someone gets it but we'll see :)

Time's up.
Any guesses on this one?

The general area looks familiar, but not sure if I've stood right next to it. Sgurr Mor and Sgurr an Fhuaran in the background confirm the approximate location. I'm going for Lochan Coire Chaolais Bhig below Meall nan Eun.

Great spot - would love to camp there 8)

Cheers - it was a toss up between that and a couple of others in the area.

Here's another - a tiny loch near a bigger one:

Initial thought was somewhere near Poca Buidhe but doesn't look the right angle - Loch na Cabhaig beside Loch a' Bhealaich ? (or might be very embarrassed if wrong .... :roll: )

You were hot then slightly colder. Nothing to be embarrassed about though - you're in the right neck of the woods.

Judging by the angles in both the above photos, I'd have gone for one of the 3 Gorm-lochs, Gorm-loch na Beinne perhaps as Beinn Eighe looks slightly closer in Malky's photo?

So, I guess I should eliminate the other two Gorm-lochs...

Gorm-loch Fada? and if that's wrong, Gorm-loch an Eilein? :lol:

Cheers Malky, I was trying to work that out using this reverse view that I took from Beinn Eighe, then RH had me questioning the angles with his image. :crazy:

...OK, can you tell me the loch (top left) that this stream is flowing into here?
