Why, your Wullie—as I told yo'—was on the Screes last night.
From the screes on our right was heard the pleasant chirp of partridges.
It grew very hot, and the screes above the thicket were blistering to the touch.
Above the hole whence the waters issued was a loose slope of slabs and screes.
Let us make a cast round by the screes, and see if we cannot get down that way.
Every winter this mountain path across the screes is wiped out of existence, and a new one has to be made when the spring comes.
I followed it through the undergrowth and over the screes till it turned inside the fold of the gully.
He meant to take the rough mountain path over the screes from Lungern to Meiringen, which ran right behind the chalet.
Ralph did not ascend the screes, out went up by Castle Rock, and walked northwards among the huge bowlders.
When the earliest gleams of light flecked the east, Ralph was standing at the head of the Screes.
