Top 5 Scottish Hills


Recommended Posts

You talkin to me? :angry:

Probably.  :)

Aye.  I do know.

As used in Scots, 'ben' signifies

'in or toward the inner or better, or (vaguely)

another, apartment'

It used to be the goood room behind the kitchen or where the coos were kept...

From Middle English binne or

Old English binnan - both meaning 'within'.

To go on

and on

This  might be where the Scots hills Binnein Beag and Binnein Mor got their names, tucked within the back of another more easily seen hills in Lochaber....

...to bring it back on topic!


Haw- I'm the etymological bore aroun' here. :o

Stop outsourcing ma job to Lahndan. :wink:
