Buachaille Etive Mor is one of the best known and loved of all the Munro peaks. The epic view of the mountain from the main A82 road makes it appear quite unassailable and is one of the most photographed sights in Scotland.
Steep ascent with scree in the corrie, followed by a bouldery ridge. The descent is on steep grass; the former boggy return through the Lairig is now much improved.
Glasgow - Fort William and Skye buses passes along the A82(T)
Please note that hillwalking in winter conditions - which is whenever there is snow lying - requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly, and to judge which routes are safe for the conditions and your party in winter. Please see our Winter Essentials for details.
