Picture of geese on and flying above a small loch with a rock formation in the backgroundA slightly vague title as unfortunately I can’t remember where exactly this picture was taken: The loch you see in the foreground is either Loch na Cachle or Loch Clach a’ Bhuaile just south west of Loch Gorm. Saligo with the well known rock formation of the Opera House Rocks / Sleeping Giant in the background.

Saligo Bay with Saligo cottage towards the left, the remains of the old radar installations in the centre, the track out to Smaull stretching out into the distance on the right. In the foreground you can see the Kilchoman road passing through, bordering the fields of Rockside Farm as well as Loch Clach a’ Bhuaile. And if you look very closely you can just about make out Dubh Artach lighthouse on the horizon.
