Buachaille Etive Mor & Stob na Broige
The 3,350ft Buachaille Etive Mor and 3,136ft Stob
na Broige are situated, 9 miles east of Glencoe village, 83
miles north of Glasgow.
The image right is from the A82 road looking at
the east side of Buachaille Etive Mor, one of the top
mountain photos in Scotland. The mountain is too
steep to hike from this side, is normally hiked from
the north side where there is a car park about 2
miles further down the road.
The mountain is easy found as it is next to the
main A82 road, 3 miles west of the Glencoe Mountain
Resort. The Glasgow to Fort William &
Skye bus passes here but the closest stop is at
the Glencoe Mountain Resort.
There is a single lane road named Glen Etive that
runs down the glen on the east side giving many more
great photos of this mountain and others.
The car park for the hike is right next to the
main road, where a narrow road runs down to a small
cottage named Lagangarbh hut. This car park is a bit
rough. The mountain is hard to photo from this side
as it is north facing.
The main hike route is past the cottage, up the
scree in the corrie between the two peeks, then left
to the summit. This is a fairly tough hike with loose
rock much of the way.
Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and
Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as
in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter,
make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know
how to use them.
