NG4819 : Boulders above Loch Coruisk

taken 61 years ago, near to Loch na Cuilce [water Feature], Highland, Great Britain

Boulders above Loch Coruisk
Boulders above Loch Coruisk
A prominent feature at the start of the ascent to the Cuillin Ridge, affectionately called "Doing the Dubhs". Also photographed in 1965 by Allan Findlay NG4819 : The Cuillin and Loch Coruisk and by Alan Reid in 1973 NG4819 : Boulders at Coruisk. Curiously these boulders have not caught the eye of the Geograph photographer since then. Have they been toppled?

The route taken that day was by boat from Glen Brittle to Loch Scavaig, a climb of Sgurr Dubh Mor, Sgurr Thearlaich and Sgurr Alasdair, a diversion to Sgurr Mhic Coinnich (or Choinnich) and then returning to Glen Brittle by a rapid descent of the Great Stone Chute.
