As you can see our route in Glen Etive follows that taken by Stretch, jimand andrea and bootsandpaddles so I won't bore you to death with the logistics as it's been well covered other than to say the owners of the cottage are building a new path and have put a sign up outside the farm asking you to use it.......so we did, nobody fancied their chances with the dugs :shock:

This is new path I was talking about but I was more interested in Ben Starav so I didn't mage to fit it all in!

The walk through the forest was cooler out of the sun but there's a few fallen trees you need to by pass

Thanks Soulminer, we had a great day and I tried to get that over in the report. Co-incidentally I said it was the back of the Buachaille to someone on the day who promptly told me to shut it :shock: and stop talking rubbish! They shall remain nameless but thanks for confirming this........I can now throw it right back at them :lol: but it is amazing how different hills can look from another angle
