Munros and other Magical Mountains - Buchaille Etive Beag
Sun 3 September 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
Set in the iconic Glencoe, this walk takes us up two Munros. We start on a good track up to the bealach (col) before walking on smaller paths first to one top, returning to the col and climbing the second Munro before descending. Stunning view all around this amazing glen and across to Loch Etive will leave you with a day to remember.
A good Munro for relative beginners.
Distance walked 8 kilometres ( 5 miles) with 900m climb ( 3000 feet)
Look forward to seeing you there.
