Coire Gabhail is a hidden hanging valley between the two ridges of Beinn Fhada (left) and Gear Aonach. It is the reputed hiding grounds for the clan McDonald's rustled cattle, how they actually got cattle in or out of it is anyone's guess?
The river that exits it is even hidden under a huge boulder and rock fall, moraine has bulit up behind the exit and forms a natural barrier. The valley floor is flat and grassy interspersed with shingle where the two soaring riges form a mystical amplitheatre.

I once descended into the valley after a long and hard day climbing over the far tops only to be astounded at the change in atmosphere and scenery within the valley.
It can be easily accessed from the main road if only a slight tricky bit crossing the river and boulder field at it's lip.

Coire nan Lochan is the wee valley on the right.

Excellent detail in the large version, right down to the cars on the road.
