Might its waters impart a peaty taste to a well-known drink produced nearby?

Edit: Forget that, I don't think this is where I thought it was!

Is it on an island? I'm going to look stupid if I'm wrong so I'm being cagey...

Oooh, post some pics somewhere. I've never been to Jura, but the west coast is miles clear at the top of my to-do list and I've read so much about it I reckon I could navigate it with my eyes shut. It's just hard to get to without a car.

Right, wherezis?

No, but that's very close to being correct!

It's near a bothy. One of the routes to the bothy passes this loch on the west side.

Loch Doire a' Ghearrain, on the way to Paenamanach on the coast of Moidart ? Lovely, lonely spot.

Nope, although that does look a nice spot.

Yes! A short walk from Suileag bothy. The sort of place you can't imagine bumping into anyone else.
