Where was this photae took competition

I'm a Flickr refugee. There is a game on Flickr called "Where was this photae took competition", and as quite a number of Flickrites have come to the sanctuary that is ipernity I thought I would start the game here.

It's really simple.

I'll post a photo, taken anywhere in Scotland. If you know where it might be, guess. If you are correct you get a point and you post a photo for everybody to guess.

Here are some rules to keep it fun and keep the game moving!

1. The photo should be somewhere in Scotland.
2. If you are the first to guess correctly you should post one of your photos. If you don't have a Scottish photo that you would like to post you don't get the point.
3. If the person who guessed correctly either decaires that they have no photo to post or doesn't post within 8 hours anybody can post a photo and they get the point.
4. In the evening (UK time between 5 PM and 11:30 PM) If the person who guessed correctly has not posted a photo within 4 hours the mob can take over the game and anybody can post to keep it moving but the original guesser still gets the point.

Slight hiccup, only pro members can post an embedded photo. I have emailed ipernity to see if something can be done...

If you're a pro member feel free to post a photo to get the ball rolling.

I'll give it a go!
The Bogg
Not too many clues inside the photo, but maybe searching the title ("The Bogg") will help. (And if you look at adjacent photos in my account, that'll get you pretty close. This was the only one without a location already attached.)

Ding ding ding! We have a winner. That's the place my grandmother's great-grandfather left when he emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1852. I've inherited all the letters his left-behind kin sent to America, for about fifty years afterwards; I'm slowly transcribing them and posting them to this blog:

Thank you. It's nice to see a Dumfriesshire photo and a genealogy enthusiast as our first participant. Thanks for the point. I'll see what I can dig out to post.

I'm going to sleep. The wee yellow google man can see this rather dilapidated village hall so if you can post a link to google maps to show you have found it, just take the point and post your photo.

I think that's the Mallaig mural? I google-searched "fishing mural Scotland" and saw another image of it, here:

You found it close enough you don't need my confirmation, but YES! Well done. Wanlockhead is the highest village in Scotland, they say. "Sheep with altitude." We were there to visit the old cemetery, which is way out Church St.

Thanks Mr Mendel. Let's hope so! I don't think any horror movies have been made at this next place. But when I was last here, the weather was terrifying. Where's this then?.
