Walk Details
Looking to tick some Munros off your list? Well this walk gives you two – Stob Coire Raineach and Stob Dubh.

Buachaille Etive Beag is often overlooked in favour of its more illustrious neighbour (Glencoe) when it comes to picking a walk to do in this part of Scotland – but perhaps it shouldn’t be anymore. In its own right it’s a magnificent ridge that offers incredible views down Loch Etive and of the surrounding peaks of the area.

Unlike some of the other routes in this area – this one offers a good, albeit rocky path to follow which will help ease the ascent and descent from the Lairig Èilde.

From the summit of Stob Dubh our route takes you back to where you started, retracing your steps.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
