No suggestions? Should I try YBW or S&CS? ;)

I'll stick my neck out: Loch Tamnavay on Harris? I've only been once but it was a memorable visit as the throttle cable snapped as we anchored. Simple enough to finish the anchoring but rather remote for acquiring a replacement.

Nope. But definitely in Scotland. ;)

Really nice anchorage, totally enclosed and sheltered from all directions. Any ideas, anyone?

Ok. I'll rise to the bait. Northbay Barra?

Good guess Donald, but both yourself and Derek are somewhat west of this marvellous anchorage. ;)

HINT: It's on the mainland.

Not been there, but is it Loch a Choire, Morvern?

I've only been in once but I'm pretty sure it's not Loch a Choire - the land is much higher all around.

More sheltered than Loch a Choire, and much easier to anchor in reasonable depths.

HINT: it's rather more to the north....

Incidentally Tom Marshall of "Shard" has some nice pics of Loch a Choire at http://thomarshall.co.uk/2225sept/handl.php

Norman got it - Loch a Chadh-fi off Loch Laxford.

A superb anchorage.
