An Gearanach

Located north of Kinlochleven in Lochaber, Highland Council Area, Am Gearanch is one of four Munros collectively known as the 'Ring of Steall' which forms a horseshoe around Coire a' Mhail. Its summit at 982m (3222 feet) is located on a short, narrow but spectacular ridge, projecting in a northerly direction from Stob Coire a' Chairn. The northern flank of the peak falls steeply down to Glen Nevis. The name An Gearanach is derived from the Gaelic for "the complainer", "objectionable" or perhaps more likely "short sharp ridge".
