Buachaille Etive Mor is probably what most people think of when they think of Glencoe. As you enter Glencoe along the A82 Buachaille Etive Mor is the huge pyramidal looking peak that looks over you to the left. Possibly the most photographed Munro. Buachaille Etive Mor is in fact made up of 2 Munros Stob Dearg and Stob Na Broige connected via a long SW running ridge. Buachaille Etive Mor can be made as hard or as easy as you wish. There are numerous scrambling routes on the northern faces of Stob Dearg most of which are at a very technical level and should not be attempted by someone with little experience. A walker’s route runs up Coire Na Tulaich on the north west of Stob Dearg following a well defined path all the way. The ridge connecting the 2 Munros is 7 km long. It’s a tough but extremely rewarding day out. Stob Na Broige is often the forgotten peak of Buachaille Etive Mor due to the sheer dominance and accessibility of Stob Dearg but both peaks are well worth a visit.
There is parking availible at Altnafedh cottage just off the A82 but like all Glencoe peaks this will fill up fast!
Buachaille Etive Mor is possibly in the top 5 of Scottish hill walks so be prepared for an awesome day on the hills!
