/ Beinn Ando---in Glencoe. Can't spell it properly?!
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?
Beinn an Dothaidh - pronounced Ben ah Dooey I think, but someone more knowledgeable (Saor Alba?) might know better
Yes, dothadh means "searing"; Beinn an Dothaidh - mountain of the searing.
Pron. something like "doh-ay" in its genitive form.
