Buachaille Etive Beag is often overlooked in favour of its more illustrious neighbour. It is, however, a magnificent ridge in its own right, offering superlative views down Loch Etive and of the surrounding peaks of Glencoe. It also has the benefit of an excellent path easing the ascent and descent from the Lairig Èilde.
Well-constructed rocky path to bealach, then fairly straightforward, rocky ridge-walking in good conditions.
Glasgow - Fort William and Skye buses on A82 but nearest stop is The Kingshouse.
Glen Coe car park opposite the 'Beehive' cairn.
