What's the corrie.jpg


It was damned cold and windy on the ridge on the day, but I think it will have been considerably warmer in the corrie to the left of centre...

I think it is Coire Domhain on the western end of the Beinn Eighe range

This corrie and lochan are not named on the OS map. But there is a Munro summit very close by.

Cheers. Lui is very distinctive, even from an unusual angle, so then it was just a matter of angles and distance!



This should be quick, but I ain't got many unused corrie shots
