Its very high up my list, and the shape of those spurs and steep ridges coming off Creag an Duine are quite distinctive.

That's the one! Thought that clue should make it easy for anyone who's been there, but couldn't let it drag on anymore, as I've a Trip Report to write!

Ah, OK, I’d forgotten about this one!

The hill is a Munro, usually climbed on its own from the head of a sea loch.

cheers jmb - needed the clue 8)

here's hoping I've got this right - if not, I'm going to be a bit :oops: I think there are two corries visible in this photo named on the 1:25,000 - assuming I'm not incorrect, the name of either which failing the name of the hill will do.......
