I've been lucky with Osprey, really, since I have only once visited a recognised 'mega- site (och of the Lowes, Loch Garten, etc) and tend to see them in lesser- known places. Balgavies Loch is one such place, with me having visited once before. Unfortunately, actually finding the place remained an issue. I accidentally found Montrose...
