Beinn Mhic Chasgaig, Glen Etive
Though dwarfed by the higher peaks around it, Beinn Mhic Chasgaig concedes nothing to its grander neighbours. This very steep hill is well defended by craggy slopes. The ascent here approaches along a dramatic gorge.
Stalkers' path through gorge initially, with dramatic plank bridge. The hill itself involves extremely steep going on often slippery slopes.
There is no public transport down Glen Etive.
