Beinn na Caillich is a great, steep sided dome of scree that dominates the village of Broadford. Its ascent is very steep but makes the first part of a circuit around Coire Gorm, and gives excellent views. The summit is marked by a huge cairn of great antiquity, rumoured to be the final resting place of a Norweigan Princess, buried on the summit so she could feel the winds from Norway.
