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 most beautiful scene, with the river raging and the mountain in the background. You can then drive for 12 miles along glen Etive ( very narrow road) taking in breathtaking views around every corner.

Great place to see deer at VERY close quarters.

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 Deer, thoroughly lovely place.

I have been ambling up and down the hills and mountains of Scotland and the Alps since I was but a nipper. This is one of the most accessible, picturesque and satisfying mountains around. However, do not attempt to walk the main corrie route unless you know what you are doing. The navigation up to the lip of the corrie is easy, but it is committed, steep and dangerous for the last 50m or so.
We went to see the sunrise and sunset. We saw cloud, rain and sleet. It was august. Take good kit and enjoy. Then go and see Glen Etive.
