Hi all,

Enjoyed my first Scottish Winter climbs this weekend. We did West Gully on a peak which, when my guide said it, sounded like Ben Ando (Ann-dough). I asked how he spelt it and he did spell it but it was long and I can't remember it. It was in the Glencoe region. It has the climb 'Taxus' on it.
I'd be keen to get the proper name so I can find more info about it.

Anybody enlighten me?
Thanks.

Beinn an Dothaidh - pronounced Ben ah Dooey I think, but someone more knowledgeable (Saor Alba?) might know better

In reply to Stani49: Beinn an Dothaidh. Means Mountain of the Burning, if I recall correctly :).

Yes, dothadh means "searing"; Beinn an Dothaidh - mountain of the searing.

Pron. something like "doh-ay" in its genitive form.
