076 "One of the Cairngorm group of mountains, in the south-west corner of Aberdeenshire estimated by Jameson at 4300 feet in altitude; by Mr. H. C. Watson at 4326; and by others at 4390 feet. If this last admeasurement be correct Benmacdhui must be higher than Bennivis, hitherto regarded as the most elevated spot in great Britain."
There are so many modes of spelling this name that it is difficult to conclude which is correct, but it appears that the name signifies "The Black Son mountain" and it has been written on Trace in the Gaelic Form.
