You do need to get back to some more Scottish Lochs, easy or no so easy and certainly portage from Loch Nevis would no be easy.
Hopefully this will be a bit more of a challenge quiz-wise but too easy for Mal to approach on an expedition :lol: It was taken at dusk and I found that turning it into a B&W photo with a blue filter gave it an "vintage" feel.
