Name that Loch!

Name that Loch!


Postby hailiamdigby » Sun Feb 22, 2015 3:28 pm

Two threads, with a similar principle.

The person who successfully gets the correct name and location of the Loch most-recently pictured can then submit their own picture of a Loch.

Please try not to use a picture of a Loch that's already been named.

Similar threads have been done with hills but I'm keen to see some pictures of Lochs, if you'd be so kind as to share them here.

Thank you for reading and here's an easy one to get started.

Shame I couldn't edit the original post but I'd like to add:

Once a person has guessed a picture correctly and it has been verified by the person that submitted it, the person with the correct answer has 24 hours to submit a picture of their own.

If a new picture hasn't been posted 24 hours after the confirmation of the correct answer, anyone is free to add a picture of their own, for people to have a stab at.

Additionally, should no-one get the correct answer - or a reply that their answer is correct - within 24 hours of the photo being submitted, a new photo can be submitted by anyone for the same process to commence.

Should no-one manage to get the answer correct within 24 hours - and a new picture has been submitted by someone else - it would be nice for the poster of the unanswered photograph to let people know the name of the Loch and its location.

Beautiful picture.
You've got me stumped.
I'm sure there'll be someone who knows this though.
Thank you for sharing your picture and good luck to everyone in guessing it :thumbup:
