One night stay
Scottish Winter doesn’t often look like that day I decided to camp over a Buachaille Etive Beag. No clouds, no wind, warmer than in many summer days and the sky so saturated with a dark blue tint that already looked like through the polarising filter.
After so many rainy days it was extremely enjoyable to hiking in those conditions. Apart from the height difference, it was almost as hiking in Switzerland…almost. Anyway, a great thing about this walk is that Buachaille Etive Beag is a ridge with two Munros that can be reached one day. First one is Stob Coire Raineach and Stob Dubh which is the higher one. Stob Dubh provides a wide and stunning view over Loch Etive and Ben Starav. But Stob Coire Raineach gives a nice view down Glencoe. It’s a great panoramic view over the Valey and surrounding summits – Bidean nam Bian, the Aonach Eagach ridge, Ben Nevis (in good weather conditions) and Blackwater Reservoirs hidden a bit behind Beinn a’Chrulaiste. Of course the closest Munro you can see from there is Stob Dearg but in my opinion is not a very much flattering angle. Showing rather it’s fat, bulky back 🙂 Did I just offend a Munro? Well, nevermind.
