NM9398 : Coire nan Gall

taken 11 years ago, near to Druim Buidhe [hill or Mountain], Highland, Great Britain

Coire nan Gall
Coire nan Gall
The more gentle side of this wild corrie. Looking up to the rounded Sgurr nan Coireachan. To the west the corrie is very rocky with many exposures of mica schist.
Coire nan Gall was used by Charles Edward Stewart when on the run after Culloden. He took a bad fall here on slabs. The going on the slopes above is still treacherous for Red Goretex and Jacobites alike.
