Stob Dubh (958m) and Stob Coire Raineach (925m) on the Buachaille Etive Beag ridge. I was lucky to catch some good views on each summit as I battered by a flurry of snow between them, 4:30hrs all in.chillyman805/05/2019
Parked just off the A82 opposite the cairn and headed up the path that leads up the valley Lairig Eilde. We took the left path to start the ascent up to Stob Coire Raineach. Easy path to follow but stone steps making it harder work. with RichieZoe Little02/05/2019

A slog up to the bealach on a scorcher of a day and the usual traverse of the ridge. Superb views but could have done with a parasol today.milimana27/06/2018

Nice day out despite high snow line and low cloud on top.GaryG13/02/2017
With Dianne Scorgie & Kasi. Great views passing low cloud that kept neighbouring Bidean nan Bian in hiding all day. No Snow The summit came very quickly on this one, a steeper climb but over very quick. Dianne struggled on the way down with knee problems, me on the other hand getting up was the usual slow plod, however I do think the squats that I am doing did help a bit.LizzieG23/10/2016

Up the fine path from the Glen Coe Car park. It was over cast but clear, so we also went to Stob Dubh as it seemed rude not to once we were 'upstairs'.mindlessflogger25/05/2015
On a traverse of Bu Etive Beag, from the CP on the A82 just E of The Study. Quite a few on Stob Dubh but this Munro seemed reserved for the determined- or just the baggers. My 2nd visit,my brother's 1st. Solo from Dalness via Lairig Gartain in 1995.pwheeler23/05/2015

Descended off the south of the ridge - not a great descent route. Would recommend returning to the col to descend back to the valley either side.Wendynicholls19/01/2013
From car park at 188562 via well constructed (albeit a bit icy in places) path.Topographer5712/01/2013
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
Cloud had cleared so stayed a while on the top admiring the views. Storms were forecast for the afternoon got back to the car by noon and drove over to the Glencoe ski centre.darradog21/08/2012
