Schiehallion is a prominent mountain in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. Schiehallion has a rich botanical life, interesting archaeology, and a unique place in scientific history for an 18th-century experiment in "weighing the world". The mountain's popularity amongst walkers led to erosion on its footpath and extensive repairs were undertaken in 2001.
The name Schiehallion is an anglicised form of the Gaelic name Sìdh Chailleann, which translates as "Fairy Hill of the Caledonians". It is also known to some as "The Maiden's Pap", or "Constant Storm". It is pronounced ''she-hally-on''
