About this event
Buachaille Etive Beag in Glencoe, or as it's more often called, the 'Wee Bookil', is a stunning mountain and one of my personal favourites. In winter conditions, it becomes a truly magical place and provides the winter walker, equipped with axe and crampons, a challenging yet achievable objective. Buachaille Etive Beag comprises of two munro summits, Stob Dubh and Stob Coire Raineach, which are adjoined to one another by an easily accessible, 750m high bealach. Stob Coire Raineach is a rough and rocky summit affording superlative views across Rannoch Moor and a vast array of neighbouring peaks. After retracing our steps to the bealach, we'll pause for breath before continuing on to our second munro summit of the day, Stob Dubh. After a steep initial climb to a 900 metre high cairned rise, the going becomes much easier and the ridge narrows, providing superb ridge-walking. A final, steeper rise leads to the fine, shapely summit of Stob Dubh where the views in all directions are nothing short of sensational. Ben Starav and Loch Etive look particularly impressive and on a clear day it's possible to look across to the islands of the southern Hebrides and beyond.
