Mountain Hare droppings?, Carn ban Mor
Description:

Seem different shape and texture to the Ptarmigan droppings already posted. Wondered if they could be Mountain Hare (definitely present at this location).

Droppings

These are much too small to be hare droppings and too elongated; however, hare droppings are more oval than the round rabbit droppings.

I suggest you move this on iSpot to birds where someone can comment. I would say they are Ptarmigan again.
