Starring the legendary Ben Nevis, with his back up crew, featuring the Aonachs and the Grey Corries! These celebrity mountains breathe ancient character into the landscape, and whisper legends of a mountain goddess, who made Ben Nevis her throne.
When travelling somewhere new, reading novels and enjoying local artists can open your eyes to a hidden side to the landscape and culture… But what I find really colours your holiday, is ancient folklore! Once you view Fort William, as an ancient Scotsman would’ve, you see the magic behind every rock. Beira, or traditionally Cailleach Bheur, is the personification of winter and the mother of all the gods and goddesses in Scottish Mythology. She is a one-eyed giantess with white hair, dark blue skin and rust coloured teeth, and is said to have used Ben Nevis as her throne.
