Cairngorms National Park.
Still there are stronger charms about the cluster of mountains forming the Cairngorm range, of
which Ben Muich Dhui is the chief or chairman*
Surrounded by his peers, he stands apart from
the everyday world in mysterious grandeur. The
depth and remoteness of the solitude, the huge
mural precipices, the deep chasms between the
rocks, the waterfalls of unknown height, the
hoary remains of the primeval forest, the fields
of eternal snow, and the deep black lakes at the
foot of the precipices, are full of such associations of awe and grandeur and mystery, as no
other scenery in Britain is capable of arousing.
