Don't know the name of the bay but it looks perhaps the wee inlet just below Kylesku at the top of Loch Glencoul ?

Camas na Cuscaig, spot on. I was hoping the angle on Sail Mhor might fool folk for a little bit longer...

You can argue whether its Loch Glencoul or Loch Glendhu at that point, but you're in the right place!

Over to you...

Thanks Mal - we went over the ferry quite a few times in the '70s before the bridge was built in the early '80s.

Name of the lochan in the middle left ?
