Journal carndearg's Journal: Carndearg?

Someone asked me what "carndearg" means.
Anyone who's spent some time hillwalking in the Scottish Highlands will have seen at least one mountain called Carn Dearg, there are quite a few. I am told by Gaelic speakers that "Carn Dearg" means "Red rock" or "Red Mountain" and is pronounced something like "Karn jearrag".
