It's a Corbett, and the prominent hill on the right is a Munro.

I wonder if this is the view looking north from the summit of Beinn nan Imirean, with the Munro peak of Creag Mhor on the right hand side of the view?

Great pic!

Is it;

a) Same neck of the woods as last one, looking up Meall Nan Tarmachan (looking South, from the Corbett over the road)?

OR

b) Looking up to Ladhar Bheinn?


Not convinced on either count.

Thanks!

It isn’t either of those - but you are totally right about the resemblance to Tarmachan from near the road over to Glen Lyon - there is an uncanny similarity.

You’re also right in that the photo was taken not too far away from the location of the previous one...

Thanks Tim, I though it was the Crianlarich hills, but couldn't place it until I saw them in real life at the weekend!

Which hill am I climbing here, by an unusual route?
