At 1181 metres (3875 feet), it is the second highest mountain north of the Great Glen (after neighbouring Càrn
) and the fourteenth highest in the United Kingdom. Càrn
stands just one kilometre to the north of Mam Sodhail and the two are regarded as twin mountains, being roughly identical in height and appearance. They stand together above Gleann nam Fiadh (Glen of the Deer) and are linked by a high col of around 1045 metres, making the traverse of the two mountains a natural day's walk. Mam Sodhail’s name translates from the Gaelic as “Hill of the Barns” although other sources give it as “Breast (-shaped hill) of the Barns”.
Adomnán calls the island "Egea insula" in his "Vita Columbae" (c. 700 AD). Other historical names have been "Ega", "Ego", "Ege", "Egge", "Egg" and "

The name "Càrn
" comes from the Scottish Gaelic language, and probably means either "File Hill" or "Notch Hill". An alternative translation, if it were to be called "Càrn Eigh", would be the "Hill of Ice"; this would make it the only Scottish mountain with the word "ice" in its name.
The peak has a distinctive pointy shape, making it a recognisable object in views from many of Scotland's mountains, including Càrn
and Ben Nevis. Its close neighbours include Ladhar Bheinn and The Saddle, but thanks to the deep gulf separating it from them, it has a high prominence — the 25th highest in Britain.
The ascent of Mam Sodhail starts at the car park at the road end in Glen Affric at grid reference . The walker can either ascend by a stalker's path up Coire Leachavie, or by climbing Sgurr na Lapaich first and then following the long ESE ridge to the top of the mountain. The view from the top takes in the impressive sights of Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan and Càrn
close by and the distant view is crowded by the mountains of the north-west Highlands. Most walkers will take in the nearby Carn
as part of the walk and strong walkers may take the opportunity to climb the remote Munro of Beinn Fhionnlaidh, which lies three kilometres to the north and is difficult to access from any other place.
Beinn Fhionnlaidh is a very inaccessible mountain, some distance from the nearest road, so usually involves a long walk in. One route is to start from the end of Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin in Glen Affric, then follow a path up Gleann nam Fiadh. From there, it is necessary to climb up and over the east ridge of Càrn
, before following its north ridge to Beinn Fhionnlaidh, via Bealach Beag.
In 1848, the mountain was climbed by Colonel Winzer of the Ordnance Survey, who discovered a pile of stones and deduced that it had been climbed earlier, although a local gamekeeper suggested it was a shelter (bothy) for watchers. In 1891 Sir Hugh Munro, 4th Baronet listed Càrn
in his "Munro Tables", in which it has remained. The full set of Munros has been "compleated" at least 5,000 times since then.
Situated in the north of Scotland, Càrn
is on the border of two historic counties, Inverness and Ross and Cromarty, and is the highest point of the latter. The mountain is very remote, more than from the nearest road, in Glen Affric, although there is a youth hostel (Alltbeithe) in the same valley that is nearer. The summit is at UK grid reference NH123261, which falls on the OS "Landranger" 25 map, the OS "Explorer" series 414–5, and the much larger area map 9.
EU law currently takes a different approach to transgender issues. Despite the European Parliament adopting a resolution on transsexuals’ rights as early as 1989, transgender identity is not incorporated into any EU funding and was not mentioned in the law establishing the European Institute for Gender Equality (
) as sexual orientation was. However, the case law of the European Court of Justice provides some protection by interpreting discrimination on the basis of 'sex' to also refer to people who have had 'gender reassignment'. Thus all EU sex discrimination law applies to transgender people. In 2002, the 1976 equal treatment directive was revised to include discrimination based on gender identity.
Houdoe (pronounce: howdo) is a Brabantic parting phrase which originated in the Dutch province North Brabant and is widely used there, but has spread to Limburg, the south of Gelderland and even to parts of Belgium. Houdoe has been derived from the Brabantic sentence "Houd oe (
) goed." This sentence can be translated to "Take care of yourself", which is often shortened to "Take care". Thus "Houdoe" is the Dutch equivalent of "Take care" and as such is used in the same manner, i.e. given when saying goodbye to someone to wish them well.
, sometimes spelt Càrn Eighe, is a mountain in the north of Scotland. At an elevation of above sea level, it is the highest mountain in northern Scotland (north of the Great Glen), the twelfth-highest summit above sea level in the British Isles, and, in terms of relative height (topographic prominence), it is the second-tallest mountain in the British Isles after Ben Nevis (its "parent peak" for determination of topographic prominence). The highpoint of the historic county of Ross and Cromarty, it is the twin summit of the massif, being mirrored by the Mam Sodhail, to the south on the same ridge.
Halvard Bjørkvik (born 9 October 1924) is a Norwegian historian. He was born in Finnøy. He was manager of the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History from 1975, and was appointed professor at the University of Oslo from 1984. His research focus was on agrarian history. Among his publications are "Jord-
og jord-leige i Ryfylke i eldre tid" from 1958, and "Kven åtte jorda i den gamle leilendingstida?" from 1972. He was decorated with the King's Medal of Merit in gold in 2006.
The mountain can be ascended from the south, beginning at Loch Affric, up the north side of Gleann nam Fiadh (fording a stream) and reaching the summit of both Càrn
itself and then Mam Sodhail in either clockwise or anticlockwise fashion (route described anticlockwise), potentially including Beinn Fhionnlaidh as an extra, since this is relatively difficult to access in any other way. The summit is marked by an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar (trig point) and a cairn. Including only the three principal Munros (i.e. excluding the two summits to the east), a successful ascent of this mountain might take between 9 and 10 hours. There is also a route to the summit from the north, via Beinn Fhionnlaidh, starting from a boat-accessible spot on Loch Mullardoch.
