The Buachaille Etive Mor
This is a special hill to me as we always drove past it on our way to holiday on the west coast when a wee boy. It always looked enormous and unscaleable, yet inviting. It is only 27ish miles from the cottage and worth the drive if only to look up at it with an open mouth. I finally got to climb it in 19-- and remember looking down on the cars below, the first time I was to do this and appreciate the 'they look like toy cars' thing.

I would like to give thanks and credit for this picture, as regrettably it isn't mine, to Mr Paul Potts who has kindly given me permission to use it here. If you like this picture you must run out and buy his most recent CD and if you like it, all his preceding ones too. Go here for more paulpottsmusic

Disappearing to the left of the picture is Glen Etive, Accessed by a single track road which winds down to LOch Etive, some 10 miles away. To the right can be seen the shoulder of Buachaille Etive Beag ( little shepard ) with the gap leading into Glencoe. The hills to the right of that are the start of the Aonach Eagach ridge, a notorious ridge walk to the north of the Glen.
