Beinn na Caillich

A Graham peak located towards the centre of the Isle of Skye, in Highland Council Area, Beinn na Caillich rises to 732m (2401 feet) 2½ miles (4 km) west of Broadford. Its summit is marked by an Ordnance Survey primary triangulation pillar installed 1948-49. The name means "mountain of the old woman" in Gaelic. The mountain is linked to Beinn Dearg Mhor (709m / 2325 feet) by a high pass. Another Beinn na Caillich, of almost the same height, is located 11 miles (17 km) to the east.
