Ben MacDhui (Highland) - High on Mountain
Popularly referred to as Britain's yeti relation, the Fear Liath Mor has been heard, seen, and felt by dozens of mountaineers over the past 150 years. The sound of snow being compacted by large feet has made climbers scarper back down the slopes; those who have seen the creature say it is more man than ape, but still covered in grey or brown hair, with long arms and a large head, and standing around twenty foot in height. During the Weird Weekend 2009, researcher Andy Roberts presented a compelling argument that the Fear Liath Mor is more a feeling of dread than a biological entity.
