Buachaille Etive Beag is the smaller of the two Sheperds of Etive, appearing quite rugged from Glencoe. Stob Dubh is the highest peak and the southerly of two Munros on this mountain.

Stob Dubh used to be the only Munro summit only Buachaille Etive Beag, and the main route headed up from Glen Etive, climbing direct and steeply to the summit from Dalness.

With Stob Coire Raineach being promoted to Munro status back in 1997, the most popular route became 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 Dubh



1. 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 !

Ascent : 940m (3080ft)
Distance : 8km (5m)
Time : 3:40hr

2. Shepherds of Etive »
