Guided hike up the mountains west of Glen Etive

Hidden behind the impressive peaks of Glencoe and Cruachan, tranquillity can be found on mountains less frequented by boots. These mountains surround Glen Etive and rise and above dense forests, from where fine ridges lead to crests and Munro summits with superb views westwards to Mull and beyond. We're here to bag the twins of Beinn Fhionnlaidh (Finlay's hill) and Sgor na h-Ulaidh, with the option of cycling in on the fine forestry tracks.
