Tour Scotland short travel video clip, with Scottish music, of Beinn Alligin, Scottish Gaelic: Beinn Àilleagan, one of the classic mountains of the Torridon region, lying to the north of Loch Torridon, on ancestry, genealogy, history visit to the Highlands. The mountain has two major peaks: Tom na Gruagaich to the south, and Sgùrr Mhòr to the north. One of the most prominent features of Beinn Alligin is a great cleft known as Eag Dhubh na h-Eigheachd, meaning black gash of the wailing, or Leum na Caillich, which cuts into the ridge south of the summit. It is the scar of the most spectacular rockslide or rock avalanche in Britain, which runs out into the corrie of Toll a' Mhadaidh Mor.
