Ah, from Stob a'Choire Odhar, maybe?

Thanks for that.

Another Mystery Hill

As I still work my way through my collection of unidentified hills that I have crossed in my life, I have another that I need help with. I originally thought this might be the Pirnmill hills that include Beinn Bharainn on Arran, but having checked some images online, that does not seem to be the cas...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

I am pretty sure now that Nos 9 and 10 are from either Sgairneach Mhor or Beiunn Udlamain to the Ben Alder hills. This is a view which seem to be very similar. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5d/Ben_Alder_from_Sgairneach_Mhor.jpg/1280px-Ben_Alder_from_Sgairneach_Mhor.jpg As is...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

In fact, it is. Just found a similar image on Wiki.

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

No. 4 is Beinn an Dothaidh from Beinn Achaladair. Just looking at that photo at this very minute and wondered if it was taken on the same day as the Beinn a'Chreachain one. I thought that it may have been a similar view of Beinn a'Chreachain. But, I think you are right. I also think that No1 may be...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

That was fun, although I didn't recognise a single hill or view! :lol: So as others have pointed out, my first instinct that it would be around the Great Glen or further north, where I have shamefully yet to explore, proved to be correct! :D John, give this a try and put yourself on a few spots whe...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

Thanks, Malky. Looks like you are spot on about Beinn a'Chreachain. I'm not sure about the other 2 though. I was quite sure about the Mamores, but turns out I was wrong! I'm now fairly confident that no.8 is Ben Tee from Sron a' Choire Ghairbh. Have a flick through this report and you will spot the...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

The other no 6 might be top of Sgairneach Mhor too? D'oh! I messed the numbering up. Sorry about that. I can't actually remember how much snow was on the tops that day. But again you may be right. No 2 certainly looks like Nevis and I am sure that I have other photos taken on that trip of the north...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

5, 6 & 7 are overlooking Loch Garry off the A9, probbaly from the slopes of Meallan Bhuidhe. This would also make sense for 8, looking over the Sow of Atholl, possibly from up on Sgairneach Mhor. Thanks. You are right about the view over Loch Garry. Remember the day now. Started at the A9. Went...

Re: Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

And finally........ maybe! I am sure these are all taken from the same hill. Or at least on the same outing. But don't let that influence your thoughts.

Mystery Tops and Locations - Part deux!

I posted a thread earlier this week of some scans of photos taken around 25 years ago. I am trying to identify these locations and tops as I am currently writing up a blog of the Munros that I have climbed. I now have more that I need help with and would appreciate any and all suggestions. 1. unknow...
