076 ; 077 ; 087 ; 088 This name is applied to a group of mountains considered the highest and wildest in Britain. The boundary on Traces shewing their topographical situation in this County is correct according to the best authorities residing in the locality, but great diversity of opinion exists regarding the extent of this range of mountains. The boundary shewn on traces extends from Beinn Meadhon down the west side of Glen Deirg, thence, along the west side of Glenlui till it joins the boundary of Glen Dee and from thence to the pass called Larig Gruamach into Invernesshire. This range includes Beinn Mucdhuibh, Cairngorm (proper) Little Cairngorm Ben Ann & Beinn Meadhon and appears the most natural boundary.
