Mount Inglismaldie appears as a pyramid shaped peak with the top flattened off and is located at the north end of the Fairholme Range which lies on the east side of the Bow Valley and Canmore. It is also the first peak in the range south of Lake Minnewanka. There is a moderate scramble route on the west/southwest slopes but the Fairholme Range north of Canmore to Inglismaldie is officially off limits for public access. The reason is not official, but it probably has something to do with the massive Mountain Pine Beetle outbreak on the west side of the range, creating the need for prescribed burns.

It was most likely named in 1886 or 1887 after the Inglismaldie Castle in Kincardineshire, Scotland by George A. Stewart. Stewart was the Superintendant of Rocky Mountain Parks which later became Banff National Park.
