Clue: I was climbing a Graham located just west of the loch in question. The loch has a dam on the opposite end but is still named as "loch" not "reservoir".

One of the few Grahams I've been up on a circuit of Loch Garry - could it be Loch Errochty ?

It is indeed. I wondered if anybody would guess it at all :lol: :lol: We did the circular route around Loch Errochty including the Graham (Creag a'Mhadaidh), not a popular approach to this hill...

Is it Gorm Loch with Am Faochagach in the background - seen from Beinn a’Chaisteil perhaps?
