Hidden beauty spot

Daytime is getting shorter and almost end of hill walking season for me.
I drove up to Glen Etive, but I found many cars were still parked there, and it was hard t find the spot.

Started there then pass a Bridge, then turn North to go to Stob Dubh, although other hikers were to the South.
Now I was alone again... then the Target and the route was clear to understand.

From Glenceitlein(Self catering cottage??), I had to cross over Dear Fence, then started to scrambling UP.
From the beginning, good(?) steep slope with faint path but grasses and rocks helped me UP.
During the scrambling UP, I could see good view of Ben Starav !!!

So, it took me 90min to get to the Summit.... just scramble UP, UP, UP.
From the Summit, view to the East was good for me.

Now the time for traverse the ridge to the East.
Actually the view to Stob Dubh was great !!!


And so as Valley to South.

Now the time for descending.
Followed the ridge to East to avoid steep section, then descend the grassy steep section seeing small river on my right.
Then pass the river and now heading to West without path.
Eventually I found faint path then followed.

From there I could hear Deer rutting sound everywhere ( scared :shock: ).
It was long walk to back to the Glenceitlein(Self catering cottage??) , but great fun of Scottish nature.
