These Corbetts were visited before an earlier trip made to the hills on the South side of of Loch More....Two and a half days in Sutherland in 2010. Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhugaill must have a longer label than any other Scottish hill? Hee and MLCMD were visited on the first day and after an overnight camp the two further North were our exercise for the second day.
