It is an Island in a Loch. But not that Island, and not that Loch.

My parents get a very nice hand painted Christmas card each year from someone they met cruising up there.
I think they have a couple of watercolours hung up too, it's like being away 12 months of the year in their house.

A bloke called Martin Conway who used to live at Connel. I originally set up yachtart.co.uk with a view to him selling commissions of yachtsand other paintings, but stuff happened and he moved away. Here's a few of his pictures:

Quite a talented guy - there's a website where you can buy prints here: http://www.conwayfineart.co.uk/Nautical.htm - but not many yachts.

Nice try, but no. (The guesses have been brilliant.)

Time for a subtle clue:

It's in Loch Sween.
