Name that Corrie!

- the corrie is on a Munro, a fairly well known one but probably more easily recognised from the opposite side
- I am standing on another Munro
- photo is on one of my recent TRs!

He is! That went even quicker than I thought it would. It's such a superb corrie, though, I guess that, once seen, never forgotten.
Over to you Tim.
PS if the map is to be believed, coire nan Clach is the corrie immediately below the point from which I took the pic - it's not clear that Coire nan Clach extends right across to Coire Dubh-Lochain...

Oops sorry been away for the weekend. Clues for both this photo and the other one (name that Loch) are Pub related, hooray.
The Corrie photo was taken from the car park of a pub
The Loch photo was taken from near a good level track that leads to a pub in about 1km or less
Both pubs are well-known and right alongside major A roads. Both road numbers begin with A8 and the last digits of each road number are only one digit different.

Wondering about extra clues for this one.
- The hills above this corrie are sometimes done as a ridge walk with two Munros, however some walkers prefer to extend the walk and visit three or even four Munros.
- These hills can be well seen from a famous statue
- The hills are covered in one of my 2018 TRs, although this photo is not actually in that TR.
