Done this walk back in September. The wee Buachaille truly is a great walk with stunning views especially down Loch Etive from summit of Stob Dubh. The walk itself is simple just follow path from carpark and turn left at first junction on path after 10 minutes walk or so. Then follow steps rest of the way up simple really. Enjoy recommend to anyone fantastic couple of Munro,s. PS Met poor soul on way down said he was lost looking for Ben Lomond. I said he is more than welcome to join along with my next walk.

Nice report Darren, with a bit of "famous-person" spotting thrown in.
Your route track looks interesting, wish I could walk as straight as that. :lol:

Met her coming off Sgurr Dhonaill a couple of years ago. Had a long chat with her and her mates. She took the p*ss out of my two terriers 'wee legs'! Funny
