The hill in the background is a mere pimple compared with the majestic hills around.

Northwest Highlands, and a particularly iconic view could be seen from the shores of this loch in the background, were the weather a tad better and we were facing in a different direction.

It reminds me of a route I cycled a few years ago with my son - the private estate road along the east side of Loch Clair. But I don't recognise the background hill at all - so I'm probably wrong!

maybe it's just the weather in the photo that reminds me...

Loch Laggan? We stopped off there one time, went for a wander and when we got back the hub-caps had been nicked. Lucky the car wasn't up on four wee piles of bricks, really... :shock:

Sorry, was away last night (a first!!)

Yes, that's it Tim. The reason you don't recognise the hill is that its really just a little bump, Meall an Leathaid Mhoir, on the slopes leading up to Beinn Liath Beag/Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine.
So yes, Loch Clair.

Cheers, no mistaking that row of stones, sometimes under water, sometimes high and dry.
It's quite a moving experience when canoeing over the pipe outlet from Loch Mullardoch as the loch gets topped up. Creates quite a current (there's a pun in there) flowing towards the dam.

Now for a short pause while I search my photo archive. :)

Looking towards Streap and Sgurr Thuilm from above the east end of Loch Quoich?

I'll go with Loch Loyne, Gairich beyond on the R.

Yep, that's Loch Loyne.

Cheers, I recognised Gairich eventually, after thinking it looked familiar, then it was a process of working back from there.


OK, where's this small named bay on a larger loch?
