Ben Starav and Glas Bheinn Mhòr from Glen Etive

Other routes and challenges

Ben Starav is a tough ascent by any standards, but the route above can be extended by the very fit.

You could optionally include Beinn nan Aighenan as a detour, and after Glas Bheinn Mhòr to take in Stob Coire an Albannaich and Meall nan Eun - doing all five would be a huge challenge.
