Rockhopper, I wouldn't have beaten you to it if you hadn't asked if it was islands - I was scouring maps of the Cairngorms! You take the next one.

Loch Coir' a' Grunnda with the Isles of Soay, Rum and Canna in the distance. Nice picture.

Pow! Straight in there. I wanted to use a picture of the loch below the Stone Chute, but it doesn't have a name on my map.

Take it away Caberfeidh.

The one in Corrie Laggan below the Stone Chute from Sgurr Alasdair is just called Lochan a Corrie Laggan. I fished it once, I do not believe there are any fish in it at all. Here is another frozen loch, but lower in altitude.

Clue ~ it is a sea-loch, despite the ice. This was taken about ten years ago during those terrible two winters when the sea froze.
