Beinn a' Ghlo
'As we left the wood we came upon such a lovely view - Beinn a' Ghlo straight before us - and under these hills the River Tilt gushing and winding over stones and slates, and the hills and mountains skirted at the bottom with beautiful trees; the whole lit up by the sun; and the air so pure and fine; but no description can at all do it justice.'
Queen Victoria 1844
Beinn a Ghlo translates as "mountain of mist" and many will attest to the rightful placement of it's name. The huge mountain complex is found on the southern fringes of the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland. The sprawling massif covers over 15 square miles. It is home to 3 Munros, 18 corries and numerous subsidiary peaks.
