Classic mountain walk easily reached from most parts of Scotland by road. Very popular in the Summer and treacherous in the winter. Not the most difficult of climbs but still not for beginners.

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.

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.

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
