Hopefully you're tempted! :-)

I'm guessing that you were so far down that you can't see Sleat at all. I had a ruler and the maps out all over the floor trying to figure it out! It's a great photo too.


Haha - I was doing something similar but online! It would have been so much easier just to check at the time! I do that so often though... take a photo of something and say to myself I'll work out what it is later, but then a month later trying to figure what hill was roughly 5 miles away or thereabouts and roughly SE-ish and where the hell did I take the photo anyways?! I just admit now "that I have no idea what it is, but isn't it a nice view!" hehe

Hi Oldbill - great report!

Your mystery photo shows the Isle of Rum, seen over the west end of Inverie Bay, not Sandaig Bay. The lump of land in the foreground on the left is Rubha Raonuill.

The flattening effect of a telephoto lens makes Rum look nearer than it actually is.

Cheers!

Great report. I was highly amused by your account of the snorers, reminded me of a night in Achininver Youth Hostel 20+ years ago.

I think the hills in the background of the "mystery view" photo are the Cuillin of Rum, and the bay is that in front of Glaschoille House, looking through the gap between Rubha Raonuill and Creagan Dearga.
