Ben Alder from Beinn Bheoil 

Ben Alder is the highest mountain between Loch Ericht and Glen Spean.
 It is the 25th highest Munro and due to its remote location,
 is one of the less frequently visited.
 Situated 19km from Dalwhinnie and 15km from Corrour railway station,
 it is commonly climbed in a two day expedition,
 usually including the neighbouring Munro of Beinn Bheoil.

 There are two bothies near to the mountain:
Culra Lodge to the north and Ben Alder Cottage to the south.

 Ben Alder Cottage is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of a ghillie
 who hanged himself from the rafters.

Ben Alder was the final summit on my round of the Munros
when I enjoyed a sound night’s sleep in Ben Alder Cottage,
my only stay in a bothy.
