One week after the great Aonach Eagach ridge walk I wanted do some Munros near the beautiful area..because of a week day asnd my later start I decided for something shorter and easier. Arrived to Glencoe in daylight ( unusually ) :lol: I stoped at the car park - start point for Buachaille Etive Beag...no any car there yet, made some photos from area around and then continued driving down to see how looks Sgorr Dhearg & Sgorr Dhonuill ( Beinn a'Bheithir ). Beinn a'Bheithir was under dark clouds, summits not visible so I decided return back and try to do the Buachaille Etive Beag.

I got to the car park again and there was one car only ( The Rodmiester & Happyfeet completing their "Isle of Skye Whisky Challenge" as I found out later there in the Hills ) :)

Glencoe - Aonach Eagach from the path of Buachaille Etive Beag

Shortly after start of my walk I saw two people above on the path and I guessed that they are from the car at the car park. We met later, spoke shortly, introduced each other and then I continued my walk up to Stob Coire Raineach as 1st summit of B.E.B. It was Rod ( The Rodmiester ) scottish Hillwalker and Emmelie ( Happyfeet ) from Danmark.

Near the summit of Stob Dubh

On the summit of Stob Dubh I met Rod & Emmelie again as they did the Stob Dubh first before Stob Coire Raineach. We made some summit photos each other there, then they started the way to the Stob Coire Raineach ( disappeared in the mist ) :lol: and I was discovering the area around the Stob Dubh summit. 8) :lol:

We met again on the path down, spoke again, exchanged our contacts, made some photos together and Rod told me more about the WH website, which I used before sometime for planning my mountains trips, but I was not registered. Then we wished a nice day each other, said good bye and split our ways: Me back down to the car park and they to the Stob Coire Raineach summit. Then I registered myself at this WH website next day...thanks Rod :D :wink: :D
