Name that Loch!

No bites yet. I am going to be away for a few days (hopefully off grid too) so just to narrow the area down a bit and give you something to think about, this photo was taken north of Inverness. I suspect a fair number of you will have passed it on your way to a popular location but will not have seen it from this side.

My original thought was Loch a Mhuillin on the Sandwood Bay path, but I got distracted and forgot.

Sorry for the slow reply. I replied to your post om "Where's the picture" then managed, on a poor internet connection, to sign out of Walkhighlands and couldn't remember my password to get back in until now.

I know the feeling. As you are so close I am going to give it to you. You were on the right path but it is Loch na Gainimh, a little before you get to Loch a Mhuillin.

Here's one that may be easy though you can't see much of the loch.
