We were going to leave the Big Bookil till Sunday and hit it on our way back home, but the forecast on the second day of our Glen Nevis trip was so good we decided to make the most of it and headed back to Glencoe and had a great day on Buachaille Etive Mor, we took the tourist route, enjoying the fairly quick, but thigh straining, ascent and even the scrambly bit at the top just before the ridge.
There are loads of reports for this walk and I cant add anything to them, just to say, if you haven't been on this walk, or have been thinking about it...just do it!
It was probably the best day I've had on the hills so far, highly recommended!
These are a few of the pics taken on the day.......
