Mount Keen


A cone-shaped summit in the East Grampians, Mount Keen rises to 939 m (3,081 feet) on the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire, 7 miles (11 km) east of Loch Muick and a similar distance south by south-east of Ballater.

Approaching the summit Queen Victoria is said to have stopped for refreshment at the Queen’s Well.

The summit is found at the end of a zig-zag path. Its name originates from Gaelic “monadh caoin” and means “smooth or pleasant hill”.
