Uinneag Coire Ardair
The Window: a famous pass at the head of Glen Roy and tucked into the crags of Coire Ardair. It is a deep gap in the high ridge of the Corrieardair hills between Stob Poite Coire Ardair and Creag Meagaidh (right). The pass is rarely used as such now, although a very fine route to Loch Laggan from Glen Roy, but is a busy place as it is used as a popular route up or down Creag Meagaidh. The steep slopes above the gap are prone to avalanche though.
The Window was reputedly used by Charles Edward Stuart while on the run after Culloden in 1746.
