Notes on Gaelic Titles
Beinn a’ Ghriain Beinn a Ghriann K1; The Hill of [unfinished] K1; Beinn a Ghriann KK. Beinn a Ghriann. A place-name. Evidently not ‘The hill of the sun’ which would be *Beinn na grèine. A. J. Haddow (1982, p. 70) suggested amending to Beinn a’ Ghriaim (‘Ben Griam’ in Sutherland) where there was a battle in 1602 between the Earls of Caithness and Sutherland. In the Edinburgh competitions this tune was offered in 1821, by a piper from Golspie (I.I. MacInnes 1988, p. 163).
