That was fast! :lol: :lol: :lol:


Whilst I've never visited this lochan, it has been in my thoughts for various planning sessions; there's an infamous canoe portage from Morar to Arkaig that goes this way!!!

I'll find another loch shortly...

We're in the NW, not a bad spot, unless you're in a gale.

Is it not Loch Assynt, with Quinag in the first photo, and maybe Glass Bheinn in the other?
