SourcesCoire Beinn Dearg: Ronald Burn, Diary
It seems, like some other beinn names which are qualified by an adjective, that this name does not have an article. Although OS does not generally record the article in the nominative form for such names, it would have done so in the names of Allt Beinn Dearg and Coire Beinn Dearg, which are not *Allt na Beinne Deirge or *Coire na Beinne Deirge.
