Buachaille Etive Mor

we drove past glencoe mountain, with the view of Buachaille Etive Mor down the road, guarding the entrance to glen etive like a sentinel.

we did not drive all the way to loch glen but most of it anyway, the drive took 1hr 10mins.

an invigorating drive, but weather was wet & not co-operative & drizzling.

we drove on to the vista view-stop & sat on a bench to stare at Buachaille Etive Mor.
