Ben Nevis, nr Fort William

Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles


The highest mountain in Scotland. C. T. R. Wilson (1869-1959) spent some weeks at the meteorological observatory at the top in September 1894 and observed the optical phenomena, especially the glory. His attempts to reproduce these phenomena inspired him to create artificial clouds and the cloud chamber in 1911.
