Not Maree.

The hills in the background are Corbetts, normally accessed from the far side.

Loch Shiel it is. From bobbing about in the canoe just off the north shore of the lower loch, west of Finan's Isle, which has a very different feel to the classic view from the Glenfinnan end. Most prominent peak towards the left is Sgurr Dhomhnuill, then Sgurr na h-Ighinn and Sgurr a Chaorainn to the right.

All yours.

I can see why you might think it's that particular lochan, but, not this is not it.

It's a good bit further west and north...
