There is a strong resemblance! - but not there, I'm afraid.

Clues - west of the A9
- gunnera in the foreground, not a native plant (as far as I know!)
- in a recent TR of mine

Glen Lyon hills (Carn Mairg, Craig Mhor and Meall na Aighean) from around Bolfracks next to Aberfeldy?

Sorry I can't be more precise as I don't recognise the view and can't quite get my generate-a-panorama skyeline to match up.

Further south and west, surrounded by Corbetts and some bigger hills. The view in the photo is to the south.

Very close but not quite close enough.

I assure you, the whole clue is accurate. We are south and west of Bridge of Orchy Hills, very close to Beinn an Lochain, Rest and be thankful and some bigger hills, with one of the three hills mentioned by rohan in the photo. :D

Where am I?

You are on the eastern slope of Ben Donich with the Brack on the right front and the Cobbler on the other side?
