Artist's Description

it’s a Scottish Gaelic thing. It doesn’t matter that most folks don’t speak the language,all the mountains and burns (streams) have unpronounceable Gaelic names. And the Gaelic speakers say Gaelic with a long A like Garlic,as opposed to Gaelic (Gay Lick) in Ireland
Allt means stream. That’s not to difficult. Coire means a pot or cauldron in Gaelic and is a Corrie and that is ,according to Wikipedia (the font of all wisdom) an amphitheatre-like valley head, formed at the head of a valley glacier by erosion.The name Coire an t-Sneachda translates as Corrie of the Snow,so this is the stream of the Corrie of the Snow An t-Sneachda is pronounced a bit like an t-nechda (no sound for the S)
Pay attention,there will be a test later

(By the way,it’s up there in the Cairngorms of Scotland and that is another story)
