Carn Cloich-mhuillin :: Shared Description

A top of Beinn Bhrotain and a prominent landmark in Glens Geldie and Dee, this hill is famous as being nominated by Sir Hugh Munro as his last three thousand foot hill. Easy of access for a big party and relatively close to home at Lindertis in Angus, it was probably chosen for practical reasons. Sadly events overtook him. Weather: most famously the 1897 Yacht Meet, kept him off the Inaccessible Pinnacle of Sgurr Dearg and there was the First World War. Sir Hugh Munro died during the following influenza epidemic and Carn Cloich-mhuillin and the Inn-Pin were the two munros, Sir Hugh never bagged.
To add insult to injury, since 1981 the Scottish Mountaineering Club have not included Carn Cloich-mhuillin in their list of separate 3000' hills - the one the munro baggers use.
