It’s a long way up and a hard steep walk but it’s very worthwhile if you put in the effort. The views are outstanding all the way up to the top., especially if you get a good dry clear day.

The Buachaille is a stark way point for Glencoe and Glen Etive. My climbing days are sadly over but the views in snow are epic. Take care driving down Etive. Some drivers have never seen or used a passing place before.

We came to see this amazing spot, it sums up Scotland perfectly. This shows the Highlands in one Glen.

The rugged beauty and atmosphere of this valley is ever changing, the light and weather dominates the dramatic mountains, particularly Buachaille Etive Mor. The area attracts visitors to experience the mood and history of this very interesting place, walkers, mountaineers, photographers and artists.

Probably the archetypal Scottish mountain. A tough walk by most routes but Curved Ridge is the classic introduction to the Munro.

It's a bit of a scramble in places, we met a few people on the way down who'd turned back before they reached the top, so be prepared to use your hands. Walking poles recommended. When we went there was snow up at the top...More

Stunning mountain, great to climb but not for the faint hearted. The view from the top is amazing. If you're re not a walker you can just admire it from afar. It welcomes you to Glencoe and doesn't disappoint. Worth a visit

Hi there, we stayed at the Isle of Glen Coe hotel, just cross the road to the Village of Glen Coe and head left, it's near the little Co-Op, you will see the quarry and there are two walks you can choose from. Hope this... More
