The loch beyond. The sign warns of geese. This is a big winter roost for tens of thousands of Pink Footed Geese. I avoided disturbance by using a track high above the loch when the geese were out at their day feeding ground. There were a lot of duck on the loch too, no bins, but I heard Wigeon and Mallard as well as the odd goose.
