Correct! At last. Not the usual route I admit and getting up the headwall to Mullach nan Coirean was an exercise in route finding and I don't recommend it. :lol:

The second Munro is, of course Stob Ban.

Thanks CharlesT!

Yes it is an impressive corrie - although I have only peered over the edge at it from the the Mullach.

Where is this?

Probably wrong, but the steep sided hill to the left looks like Sgiath Chuil, so you could be on the Tarmachan ridge,

Very close!

Clue - the prominent steep hill on the left is part of a Munro but it is not the main summit

A few more clues!

Two Munro summits are visible: one on the right and a more distant one in the middle. Over on the left there is a very hazy distant slope which is part of another Munro

I took this photo from the summit cairn of another Munro

There is also a Corbett in the view

Spot on. The prominent scarped hill is An Grianan above Glen Lyon. The photo was taken from the summit of Meall a’Choire Leith.

Thnaks. Took a lot of looking around that area after Charles T got close - needed your last clue as well.
Will have a look for a photo.

I think you are on Beinn a' Choin, looking at Chleibh, Lui, Oss, and Dubhcraig.
