Scotland. Tom a'Choinich is an eastward extension of the Carn Eige range, an 'e' shaped junction of three ridges above Glen Affric. The name Càrn Eige comes from the Scottish Gaelic language, and probably means either File Hill or Notch Hill. An alternative translation, if it were to be called " Càrn Eigh ", would be the Hill of Ice; this would make it the only Scottish mountain with the word " ice " in its name.
