The path to the col between the 2 Munros on Bu Etive Beag was so good that a Dutch couple armed with a handout from the tourist office finished up here instead of the Lairig Elide. We advised them to change their day go up this mountain. After visiting Stob Coire Raineach, we went over Stob Dubh, down SSW to about 250m, then back via Lairig Elide. Clouding over all day but tops clear. With Pete. Also solo from Dalness via Lairig Gartain in 1995.pwheeler23/05/2015

Buachaille Etive Mor & Buachaille Etive Beag. Good walk and very good weather. No real tricky bits but cracking views. Found an obvious grassy ascent to link in the Etive Beag range. To top the day a couple of RAF Hawks flew very low through the valley as I was descending - pretty much at eye level - awesome!scholesy05/10/2012
A nice climb up from Glencoe. Weather cloudy but dry. Chatted to a chap I had seen a couple of days earlier on the Eastern Mamores.darradog21/08/2012
A great way to spend the Jubilee extra public holiday! Good weather and great views. Did Stob Coire Raineach first.milngavie_kenny04/06/2012
second ascent, 3 in party, very windy on the tops, with snow and spindrift. climbed the first munro quickly from the car park on the new path to the col. returned to the col and continued out over a minor top before reaching the second munro, clear views but gust were strong enough to knock you over return same way, taking a more direct descent from the minor top.rum doodle 24/02/2012
Second Munro with Danny Crump, Sarah, Rafal, Richard. Lunch on the top and then easy off via path on west.mfel5730/12/2011
