Buachaille Etive Mor
'The Great Herdsman of Etive,' Buachaille Etive Mor is a truly iconic mountain of Scotland, guarding the entrance to Glencoe.

The ascent and descent is steep and rough in places, though the hard work is always repaid by this wonderful mountain.
Time: 7-9 hours
Ascent: 1,110 metres
Stunning views, big mountain feel, two Munro summits
The Lost Valley (Coire Gabhail)
Make the short, but rough, way up into Coire Gabhail and find yourself immersed in the beauty of this incredible hanging valley.

Fantastic mountain and river scenery
