Having recently been up Ben Eunaich, I see the resemblance - but this hill is a bit smaller - and it is even closer to Ben Lui. It is best known, I think, for a waterfall and a controversial planning decision!

Coire na Saobhaidhe on Beinn Chuirn then? Eas Anie being the waterfall (and much sort after winter climb when frozen)?

Sorry for the delay! Yes indeed - Coire na Saobhaidhe is the corrie, Beinn Chuirn is the hill and Eas Anie is the waterfall. And of course the controversial planning decision is on the attempts to mine gold at Cononish.

Thanks. Here's, I think, an easy one from this weekend.

The main coire in the centre of the photo please:

It looks to me like Loch Quoich in the distance. Would the corrie be Coire nan Gall below Sgurr na Ciche?

Not far off... just a few miles to the north and east!

A clue - the other side of this corrie is much more often photographed.

Thank you, Tim. I have not many pictures of corries I could identify myself, so this is probably an easy one, but I like it very much. I hope it had not been offered already:
