Morven  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Morven like this:

Morven, a round-topped felspathic mountain (2862 feet) on the mutual border of Glenmuick and LogieColdstone parishes, SW Aberdeenshire, 5 ¼ miles N of Ballater. The Queen ascended it, with the Princess Alice, on 14 Sept. 1859; and ' the view, ' she writes, ' from it is more magnificent than can be described; so large and yet so near everything seemed, and such seas of mountains with blue lights, and the colour so wonderfully beautiful.'-Ord. Sur., sh. 75, 1876.

Additional information about this locality is available for Logie Coldstone
