Buachaille Etive Beag, Glen Coe, Map 384; 8th January 2005

Route: 890m = 2925' ascent; 7 miles; 5½ hrs

Weather: I had intended doing this in combination with Buachaille Etive Mor, but the weather was too bad on that occasion. It was bad this time too! Cold with strong winds and hail. Soft snow underfoot above 1500'. Cloud level initially above all tops, but falling and below tops when reached.
Route: There are better starting points than as here, such as the A82 cairn parking at NN187563 or Glen Etive NN172515, both of which avoid a boggy start and that in Glen Coe is shorter and higher.
