Join us for a walk along the ridge of Buachaille Etive Mor, the Big Buachaille, taking in both Munro summits. This all-day walk along the iconic ridge has stunning mountain scenery to be viewed in all directions, and fantastic wildlife to discover. Your Ranger guide will offer a unique insight into the conservation work we undertake in Glencoe’s mountains, plus a chance to discover more about the Glen’s wildlife, geology and history. Even if you’ve climbed this mountain before, we can guarantee you a completely different perspective this time round! Our Rangers are also experienced Mountain Leaders who will look after you on your journey to the top and back down again, sharing some hill skills and navigation tips too.
This is a Grade D+ walk.
