Buachaille Etive Mor & Stob na Broige Hike

The 3,350ft, 1,022m Buachaille Etive Mor and 3,136ft, 956m Stob na Broige are 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.
