This is an impressive peak in the West Highlands of Scotland, overlooking the foot of Glen Etive and Loch Etive.
It's a steep climb up to the summit along the north ridge, and then there's a ridge with a few tricky sections along it - not too difficult, but not recommended for those with vertigo! It leads to another munro, Glas Bheinn Mhor (997m).
Bill Cook climbed it with other members of the Easy Walking Group, and he has provided the story and photos.< Back to Scotland page for links to other stories
