Beinn Bhrotain

(Ben Vrottan)

The granite peak of Beinn Bhrotain (Ben Vrottan) rises to a height of 1157m (3796 feet) to the west of Glen Dee in the southern Grampians, Aberdeenshire, and is classified as a Munro. It is connected by a col called Adha nam Fiann to the neighbouring mountain, Monadh Mor. There are cairns and an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar on its summit. East of this summit there is a large expanse of sandy gravel which is almost devoid of vegetation although rare arctic-alpine plants can be found near the cliffs at An Garbh Choire. The name of the peak is derived from the Gaelic for "hill of (the mastiff) Brotan".
