Are there two Loch Stemsters then? Because there's one about 11 miles south of the one marked on OS maps as Loch Scarmclate.

Skoosh, that link takes me to a page telling me that I have won some fabulous prize, but only if I claim it in the next 15 (probably now 10) minutes. Is that what you intended?

With your reassurance, I tried again and it went to the right place this time.

So there are indeed two lochs, about 11 miles apart, known by the same name. How confusing! :)
