Cairn Gorm, Highland, Scotland, PH22 1RB, United Kingdom (57.11667 -3.64489)
Cairn Gorm (Cairngorm) (Scottish Gaelic: An Càrn Gorm, meaning The Blue Hill) is a mountain in the Scottish Highlands overlooking Strathspey and the town of Aviemore. Cairn Gorm has a summit elevation of 1,245 metres (4,084 feet) AMSL and is the seventh-highest mountain in both the United Kingdom and the British Isles. Cairn Gorm gives its name to the mountain range and the National Park of which it is a part, The Cairngorms, despite that it is neither the highest nor the most prominent mountain in the range. These mountains were historically known as Am Monadh Ruadh (the Red Hills) rather than the Cairngorms. The domed summit of Cairn Gorm is one of the most readily identifiable mountains in the view from Aviemore.
