Stob na Doire, Stob Coire altruim, Stob na Broige up and down a very icy Coire AltruimGeoff Briggs19/11/2019
Absolute brilliant day out, great weather and viewsKevthecat18/10/2019
Started at the layby on the A82 at the start of the Buachaille Evite Mor and headed for Curved Ridge. Ascended with Matt, who is working towards his MAI, using a rope and harness. My first time on a grade 3 scramble and was glad I was able to enjoy the whole experience without stressing about the climb. Easy scrambling mostly but 2 parts I was relieved I had a rope on. Amazing. Headed over Stob na Doire and Stob Coire Altruim to Stob na Broige. Descended via Coire Altrium and was a bit of a down scramble over a gill. Brillant day.Zoe Little20/07/2019

Wow... Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige via curved ridge. Airy scrambling and breathtaking exposure on the ascent then an enjoyable ridge walk before returning down Lairig Gartain. Outstanding!Chris Mac30/06/2018

From Glen Etive. Traversed base of Buachaille Etive Mor; ascended via Coire na Tullaich; visited Stob Dearg; traversed to Stob na Broige; retraced steps to low point in ridge at NN192527 and descended SE to road being careful not to get trapped between gullies formed by burns. Ascended Beinn Mhic Chasgaig (Marilyn 1100!) from Allt Coire Ghiubhasan gaining west ridge. Descended back to Glen Etive via NE ridge. Fantastic temperature inversion all day - very lucky.raffemeister20/01/2017
End of traverse of the mountain from Stob Dearg. Low cloud all the way with only brief glimpses of Glen Etive below. Awkward at times descent down path to the Lairig Gartain.Windy Corner17/09/2016

Last of the Bu Etive Mor tops with my brother, in and out of cloud,but this summit ridge had cloud one side clear the other. Very eroded descent into Lairig Garten. Also visited in 1981.pwheeler24/05/2015
From Glen Etive 208513 via Stob Coire Altruim after an over night camp next to the river. Wasn't a Munro when I bought my book but I enjoyed the early morning views in the sunshine. Found an antler on the way down but not sure what to do with it.mindlessflogger23/05/2015

Last top of the day. Descended down to Glen Etive. Very steep, but on dry grass it goes, as they say, as long as you avoid the gulley.Roblex17/06/2014

With Dad, DW & SL. Ascent via Curved Ridge, and then along to the far Munro, with all tops en route bagged. An epic day with awesome (and, for once, hot) weather. Classic mountain.AGWilliamson08/06/2013
Standard route in winter conditions, but bright sun and cool weather made it glorious. Ridge was sharper then I thought and needed a bit of care. With Davis M.Jhimmy30/03/2013

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
'Luxury' path and staircase all the way. Weather fine with midges and rangers fan on summit. Pint in Kingshouse.gercal5326/08/2012
Weather was horrible as I reached the top. Ate lunch in the shelter cairn then got off the mountain as quickly as possible (with time to get to Ft William and buy a new waterproof jacket!)darradog20/08/2012
Climbed from the south a year after 22 hour epic up curved ridge on Stob Dearg a year to the day. Weather can only be described as continuous heavy rain. Off via south west to road. Danny, Sarah, Richard, Andrew. Buachaille Etive Mor was certainly earnedmfel5731/12/2011
