It's near Loch Lomond, but it's a sea-loch.

That's a huge clue. Loch Long, and the promontory is Ardmay House?

It's a beautiful area indeed.

This one might be a little too cryptic.

Sorry, not there either! It's an easy spot to get to, but wouldn't quite live up to the photo. I said cryptic because there's not much to identify the location :)

I knew it wasn't the right topography but as I let your photo on the North coast looking over to Eilean nan Ron go when I was 80% certain but couldn't place the geo (I am named after that Island), I thought I would have a go.

Cheers Dave, great pic, I've stopped at that spot often, good place for reflections.
