Ben Macdui: The Haunting of the Big Grey Man

Ben Macdui, the highest peak in the Cairngorms and the second highest in Scotland, is infamous for the “Big Grey Man” or “Am Fear Liath Mòr.” This mysterious entity is known to instill intense fear and panic in those who encounter it, often manifesting as a large, shadowy figure enveloped in the mountain’s frequent mists.
