The Red Cairn is the rough granitic (or sienitic) ridge, northward of the snowrocks on Ben Nevis. I ascended it on the declivity fronting Neptune's Staircase, and descended it by the precipitous slope, on the contrary side to Ben Nevis. By "west" is meant the side ascended, and by "north" is to be understood the side descended, though not exact to the points of the compass.
