Tour Scotland Photograph Lochnagar and Loch nan Eun

Tour Scotland photograph of Lochnagar mountain and Loch nan Eun in the Grampians of Scotland. Technically, the English name for the mountain is a misunderstanding, being named after Lochan na Gaire, the little loch of the noisy sound, a loch to be found in the mountain's north east corrie. Today the lochan is popularly called Lochnagar too. The summit itself may be referred to as Cac Càrn Beag, meaning " small cairn of faeces " in Scottish Gaelic. Beinn Chìochan, mountain of breasts, is an alternative Gaelic name.
