Well there is no one keeping a lookout, so it must be stationary, and I presume therefore it should have a black ball up? Also, no ensign. Must be a local craft though, no courtesy flag.

From the photo from the 'Spot The Mistake' MCA Training manual, I presume it is on exercise near the MCA Training Facility.

My guess therefore is Stanpit Marsh nature Reserve.

Could be Eileach an Naoimh, Garvellachs perhaps?

Although Jim is the most creative, SteveN is the closest but doesn't win the cigar.

A big clue: Had you been aboard at that moment you would have seen the Garvellachs astern.

Correct - and Eilean Dubh Mor in the bottom RH corner.

I knew that clue made it too easy.
