Buachaille Etive Mor
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 on A82 but nearest stop is The Kingshouse.
Layby at Altnafeadh.
