A busy Corrie

7th March 2017

Coire nan Lochan has been the focus of most of the mountaineering in Glen Coe this winter judging by the popularity of the lay-by.  Again there were plenty of people about today making the most of the rather overcast day.  The boulder skirt below the crags is starting to get a covering of snow and there were some impressive cornices to be seen.
