The mountains from left to right are: Canisp, Suilven, Cul Mor, Cul Beag, Stac Pollaidh and Ben Mor Coigach. Taken with my first plate camera, a metal MPP.

I want to be there. On that day.

Unfortunately it doesn't get very snowy conditions very often, or for any length of time, being so close to the sea, and only 'Corbetts'.

Well, this shot's made me want to go to there...

A super photo and an interesting comment:
only "Corbetts"
should that be
"only" Corbetts?
The height and pleasure of a mountain is diminished by the number of people that visit it. So some Corbetts can be much more appealing than Munros. It is remarkable in the Alps as well, 4000+m is often crowded, especially in the huts. 3900m and you can have the place to yourself. Well nearly.

I agree with your comment about the merits of many Corbetts. I put the term in quotes because I think the whole notion of labelling mountains in this way is rather daft, as if the exact height of, say, 2000 ft or 3000ft has any particular relevance to the experience of climbing them or their qualities as mountains.
