This lochan shouldn't pose much of an identification puzzle, I think...

Sorry for the delay in replying - I somehow lost sight of it.

Toll an Lochan it is. I think Rohan gets it...

Thank-you, welcome back. By the way "Where's the picture (Scotland)? " is also waiting for your input!

This should be quite easy

Clue time. It is between 2 great hills (IMHO) that I have recently visited.

I'm a bit surprised that no-one has come forward with an answer. Another clue, there is a "nose" of the same name nearby.

Correct! and you should recognise that the photo is from my TR for that section of the Watershed. Your turn.

Yes, I guess I should, but I actually suddenly remembered it from my own wandering through the bealach from which the pic is taken - the pic in my WR is almost identical!

Here's an easy one, I think...

It's the Lochan below Binnein Beag looking towards Binnein Mor. It's not named on my map and no idea what it's called. :?

Sunset Tripper, you got it first time (cheating a bit, I was, since, as you say, it doesn't appear to have a name....).

Over to you.
