Buachaille Etive Beag is the smaller of the two Sheperds of Etive, appearing quite rugged from Glencoe. Stob Coire Raineach is the most northerly of two Munros on this mountain.

Prior to 1997, Buachaille Etive Beag had only one Munro summit, Stob Dubh, and the main route headed up from Glen Etive, climbing direct and steeply from Dalness.

Stob Coire Raineach has since been promoted to Munro status and now the most popular route is the approach from Glencoe. The NTS have re-built sections of the path up to the bealach on Etive Beag's crest, and now Buachaille Etive Beag, in ideal summer conditions, can be considered to have one of the easiest Munro duo routes.



Hillwalking routes up Buachaille Etive Beag - Stob Coire Raineach



1. Shepherds of Etive »


The rugged mountains and iconic peaks of Buachaille Etive Mor and Etive Beag guard the entrances to Glencoe. Long high-level ridges between Munro summits and some easy scrambing make for a classic hillwalking route.

Ascent : 1875m (6150ft)
Distance : 19km (12m)
Time : 8hr

2. Buachaille Etive Beag's Munros from Glencoe »


Like its big brother Etive Mor, Etive Beag appears quite impregnable from the Rannoch Moor approach. However, head around the west side of the mountain and an ascent looks much less intimidating !

Distance : 8km (5m)
Time : 3:40hr
