Corrie Caol, above the site of the Battle of Glen Shiel, 1719A.D. where Spanish forces attempted to back Jacobite forces but were driven off by combined sea and land forces, during which the castle of Eilean Donan was ruined by cannon fire from British Royal Navy ships, not being rebuilt until the early 20th Century. Old lead musket balls still turn up when drainage ditches are dug in the area.

Yes, that's the one! :clap:
The hill in cloud is Creag nan Damh, hill number 7 on the South Shiel Ridge, with the slopes of Sgurr Beag (not a Munro or a Top, and often traversed around) on the left.

Oh indeed - last week in the mist.
What a great walk!
Very easy I'm afraid.

Thanks, k.c ... no sunshine (band) then :wink:

Another misty one...the named corrie here is to the bottom right of the pic and beyond, it's name shall suffice (there is another, non-typical, name on the map for the upper corrie):
