Name that Corrie!

Hmmm! No takers! Obviously not as easy as I thought.
OK, clue time.
The high point immediately above the corrie is a Corbett, and there's a bothy near where the two glens meet just right of centre pic.

That's it! It's a wonderful looker, isn't it; and you wouldn't really see it from the map (at least I didn't!!).

Your turn...

Thanks. Aye, its a great coire. I needed your clue though. We descend from the north to Kinbreack in the dark, then straight up towards Sgurr Mhurlagain the next morning so didn't see it until we got onto the Druim Coire an Stangain Mhoir. Quite a surprise to see it open out like that!

Hmm, I'm a bit short of photos on my laptop. Let me see what I can find. Back shortly....

Nope, but you're close...

EDIT: assuming you mean the Sgurr nan Conbhairean one not the Beinn Fhionnlaidh one!
