Carn nan Gobhar

One of the four peaks that make up the North Strathfarrar Ridge, Carn nan Gobhar rises to 992m (3255 feet). Classified as a Munro, it lies between two others; Sgurr a' Choire Ghlais (1083m / 3553 feet) to the west and Sgurr na Ruaidhe (993m / 3258 feet) to the east. It is located within the Highland Council area, on the border of the former counties of Inverness-shire and Ross and Cromarty. The peak has a smooth and rounded appearance, similar to Sgurr na Ruaidhe, and its name is Gaelic, meaning 'hill of the goats'. Confusingly, there is another Carn nan Gobhar, of exactly the same height, located 8½ miles (14 km) to the southwest.
