Buachaille Etive Mor


Please note that this walk was completed Aug 2010.

Buachaille Etive Mor

If you miss Etive Mor, situated in Glencoe then you really need your eyes tested. This Munro is one of the most prominent mountains in the area and is impossible to miss.

I had parked the car at the car park at Altnafeadh, just off the A82. This gives good access to the mountain, although the car park can get busy quickly. The first part of the walk was to a building that looks like a small cottage, nestled at the foot of Etive Mor. This is actually called Lagangarbh hut. 
Scree Time 


From there I decided to ascend straight up between the two peaks. This area is covered in loose rock, also known as scree. I did pick out a faint track through it, until near the bealach where is was a case of a fun but stressful scramble. I had time to collect myself at there before continuing the well worn path to the top. 
The Mist Decends

Near the Top

The mist had descend by now which limited my view but it cleared enough at the summit to get a good view of the road in the below.

This walk involved a second Munro, Stob na Broige, which I will post on at a later date

Remember, please stay safe, everyone.
