I can’t make too many bold proclamations when I’ve yet to climb most of them, but the two Munros of Buachaille Etive Beag must be amongst the quickest and easiest to pop in your bag, should bagging be your kind of thing.
From an elevated starting point close to the Pass of Glencoe, an easy if unadventurous pitched path takes you directly up the side of the mountain to the bealach between Stob Coire Raineach and the fine ridge to Stob Dubh.
On this last outing I tackled the latter first, when the other way round would have been the better option, as Stob Coire Raineach offers better views but was drowning in cloud by the time I reached it.
Even so, there are still excellent views from the ridge, particularly over Bidean nam Bian. For those who have only ever seen its lower spurs in the form of the Three Sisters, this gives a revealing insight into the sprawling complexity of the mountain and its multitude ridges.
For more work from Glencoe, or to buy prints, you can pop along to the Glencoe gallery.
