Repost to keep on same page.

Probably a cold place in winter, as its its larger twin loch behind the back wall. The hill in the far distance is a remote munro, and the slopes on the right belong to another.

That's the one!

An amazing place, definitely a highlight of the best ascent of A' Mhaighdean via the NW ridge.

Your turn.

Thanks - I needed the clues for that one! Looks like a very fine place indeed.

This one is a bit more accessible:

I think a clue is needed... The slope is north-facing. The summit visible above the corrie is a Corbett, usually climbed with the neighbouring Munro. The corrie itself is rarely used as a route for hillwalkers.

Well done :clap: Not a popular way to go up/down Sgur nan Ceannaichean. We had another agenda (wreckhunting), but it is really a nice route if a bit steep.

All yours :D
