Mount Keen

A cone-shaped summit in the E Grampians, Mount Keen rises to 939m (3081 feet) on the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire, 7 miles (11 km) east of Loch Muick and a similar distance south southeast of Ballater. It qualifies as a Munro and there is an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar at its summit. Approaching the summit Queen Victoria is said to have stopped for refreshment at the Queen's Well. The summit is found at the end of a zig-zag path. Its name originates from Gaelic "monadh caoin" and means smooth or pleasant hill. The Mounth Road crosses its western slopes.
