Buachaille Etive Mòr

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Buachaille Etive Mòr is one of the best known and loved of all the Munro peaks. The epic view of the mountain from the main A82 road makes it appear quite unassailable and is one of the most photographed sights in Scotland.


Steep and rough ascent followed by a bouldery ridge. The descent is also steep and scrambly in places; once across the burn the walk out through the Lairig has a good path.
