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

Take the road to glen etive from the main Glencoe road. The buachaille mountain is on your right. Drive 100 yards and pull in to the small parking space, cross the road and walk 50 yards towards the buachaille mountain and you will see the...More

Staying in Ballachulish, visited the Waterfall to photograph as was on our 'Tick' list. Had some fantastic weather, although it was very very muddy and looked like a herd of elephants had been over there. But we also drove down Glen Etive to see the...More
