Name that Corrie!

Name that Corrie!


Postby hailiamdigby » Sun Feb 22, 2015 3:22 pm

Two threads, with a similar principle.

The person who successfully gets the correct name and location of the corrie most-recently pictured can then submit their own picture of a corrie.

Please try not to use a picture of a corrie that's already been named.

Similar threads have been done with hills but I'm keen to see some pictures of corries, if you'd be so kind as to share them here.

Thank you for reading and here's an easy one to get started.

Right again, Guinessman! :clap:
The honours go to you.
I look forward to your next picture.
If it's anything like that picture of your Loch, I'm keen to see this :D

Shame I couldn't edit the original post but I'd like to add:

Once a person has guessed a picture correctly and it has been verified by the person that submitted it, the person with the correct answer has 24 hours to submit a picture of their own.

If a new picture hasn't been posted 24 hours after the confirmation of the correct answer, anyone is free to add a picture of their own, for people to have a stab at.

Additionally, should no-one get the correct answer - or a reply that their answer is correct - within 24 hours of the photo being submitted, a new photo can be submitted by anyone for the same process to commence.

Should no-one manage to get the answer correct within 24 hours - and a new picture has been submitted by someone else - it would be nice for the poster of the unanswered photograph to let people know the name of the Corrie and its location.

You, me and Mamoset so far :)

It is a crap day, today. Can't complain though. I've been getting out a few times recently and it is winter, after all 8)

Name this corrie :problem:

This one might be trickier. I don't know if I'd get it. Soon see though.

That's a very-good guess and I can see why you'd say it but - I'm sorry to say - nope, that's not the corrie :o
