Beinn Mhic Chasgaig, Glen Etive

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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. The route involves a crossing of the Allt Coire Ghiubhasan which may be impossible in spate.


Stalkers' path through gorge initially, with dramatic plank bridge. The hill itself involves extremely steep going on often slippery slopes.
