Was looking yesterday and thinking of Crainlarich hills or Mamlorns, couldn't find a corrie to match your clue.

Wild stab at Coire a'Chuillinn near Beinn Chabhair?

I'll give you that as it's the corrie below. I was looking for Coire Riabhach above it but you were almost exact so over to you.

We're approaching a Munro Top in the photo above, which leads to a Munro.

Sorry, not there, a bit further North and West (and it is a Munro).

A lucky guess based on your clues and the final pic showing what looked like Loch Linnhe, then I just had to figure out the shapes of the hills. New one coming up once I find something...
