Glencoe peak may inspire campers
Bookmark and Share
An image of one of Scotland's most iconic mountains may inspire those keen to camp and climb in the Glencoe area.

The Scotsman newspaper has published a photograph taken by a man from Inverness of Buachaille Etive Mor's buttresses with a coating of snow, which he snapped in the nick of time as the scene was obliterated by rain ten minutes later.

It was taken from the edge of Rannoch Moor, near where the Kings Hotel stands, but those keen to enjoy the fresh air of Glencoe may wish to head up there with their tents this summer and stay in one of the area's camp sites.

The Buachaille Etive Mor ridge has two Munros, Stob Dearg and Stob na Broige, with the second being added to the list when it was last revised in 1997.

At 3,352 ft, the former summit is the third highest peak in Glencoe, with the loftiest peak in the valley being Bidean nam Bian at 3,772 ft.
