I keep coming up with Unicorn Peak and Cockscomb Peak, but neither looks quite correct.

For something different… Name the country.

(Note for pedants: I know the rules say to nominate the continent, but I am only after the name of the country, so nominating the continent would make it too easy).

Nothing "maybe" about it. I really thought this would take longer to guess.

It's Asahigoya Hut near Mt Asahi. Lots of great walking in Japan.

Oh is that so? Seems interesting and diverting, so what country is this then?

I don't think there are many dual-pitch roofs in PNG so I'll guess Canada.

Not South Korea either. I have to admit that the building by the lake shore is atypical of this country - yes, that's why I chose it :) This country is a Kingdom or at least a part thereof (I think the last unsucessful claim to the throne was made in the 1980s by a certain high ranking military officer).

Congratulations John, it is indeed Scotland, home to Loch Tay as pictured and a country claimed as his kingdom by Field Marshall President Sir Idi Amin Dada VC MC CBE etc. I have awarded you a virtual haggis in recognition of your determination and perseverance. Just wondering: is W a Scottish name?

You may be on to something Greg, I humbly accept the virtual haggis. I'd slice it open with my virtual claidheamh-mòr but that might be overkill. Slàinte Mhath!
