I completed the Quinag Horseshoe taking in the 3 Corbetts last June whilst on holiday in Assynt. Here are a few photographs I took along the way including views of some of the surrounding mountains that can be seen from Quinag. I will let the photos do the talking.

Looks like it was a fine day for it. A route I have yet to experience. Hope I get a day like that to savour it.

Have done this hill many times when staying at Inchnadamph Hostel which I would highly recommend. Consider it to be one of the best ( short ) days out ever. Only ever had problems on it once - in a howling gale / blizzard in January a few years ago when I didn’t even get to the top of Spidean Coinich - by half way up I was on my stomach. Good to see that you had good weather as it is a hill, or three, to be savoured.

You may be too early on in your Corbett round to have realised quite how hard it is to get more than one or two Corbetts at once, and what a great hill to have them on. Nice pics.
