Silkie-ville in Siklieshire, close to Silkiebase (Dunstaffnage), probably taken on Saturday.

Probably totally wrong about this, but the skyline does look like Mull, but from where?

My first thought was looking southish across the Sound of Mull from Fiunary, but couldn't see Eileanan Glasa, and, having seen your anchor thread from Gometra, will hazard a guess that it's from Ulva, looking across Loch na Keal perhaps?

It's a conspiracy. You're all in it together.

I know for a fact that 99.9% of all known posters have seen this exact view.

In trepidation, and fearing the QI siren for the obvious answer:

Pullers across to Mull, the view you get on the way back from the TnT. The islands in the foreground look too low though, was it a high tide?

Do I get -10 and look like Alan Davis?

If Bob is right, then even I have been there! I wouldn't have recognised the pic though - on my only time there it was pi55ing down, and I seem to remember that the bracken was above eye level.

Bob is absoloutely right of course. It wasn't meant to be a serious whereisit as I assumed that everyone would recognise it immediately. I just thought it was an atmospheric snap.

Good grief! How irresponsible of you! I've been agonising over whether i should know the place or not. When even Shard is stumped for :idea: 's

I'll have to go lie down in a darkened room now.

And there is me thinking I did really well, only to find it's "not a serious whotsit" :!:

I've only been twice Ash, and the first time it was pi$$ing down, I hitched a lift to Ardfern to get the car and went home early. I shouldn't have bothered coming back for the kids, they would have been OK.

It was nice last time though, a week ago tonight.

Infact I was going to say the pole in the centre of the pic looked like the path marker at Pulldoran but thought it was too obvious, and I dont remember the rocks in the centre, but then again I wasent anchored up that far so maybe hadent seen them, also my back would have been towards them while making my way up the hill for a pint and of course it was pitch dark when returning besides my eyesight wouldent have been all that good at that stage, is it 'Blind drunk' it is known as! :lol:
