Conival

A mountain of Assynt in the Sutherland district of Highland Council Area, Conival rises to a height of 987m (3238 feet) forming the western shoulder of Ben More Assynt, 3½ miles (5.5 km) east southeast of Inchnadamph. The origin of the name is ambiguous; possibly from the Norse konna fjall for "lady's peak" or from the Gaelic for "hill of the dog" or Cona-mheall suggesting a hill on the shoulder of another higher peak. At its summit is an Ordnance Survey primary triangulation point, marked by a ground-level block.
