Glen Etive Hills Backpack

Last weekend, Colin and I spent an excellent two days backpacking in the hills to the south of Glen Etive.  The weather was significantly better than forecast and, apart from a handful of other hill walkers on the Saturday, we saw no one else all weekend.  We had a good high camp spot in one of the bealachs with good views, and we got a view from the top of every Munro!

This post is an index on my blog posts on the trip, which I have updated to include more photos and maps of our routes, and there's also a link to more of my photos from the weekend.
  • Day 1 - Glen Etive road to bealach to N of Beinn nan Aighenan (the short way)
  • Day 2 - Bealach to N of Beinn nan Aighenan to Glen Etive road (the longer way!)
  • Photos from the trip

  1. Looks fantastic! Can't believe there's still so much snow up there and fresh (or so it looks) at that

    1. It was indeed fantastic, and one of those occasions when I was glad the weather forecast was wrong!

      I too was surprised by the amount of snow, and yes a lot of it did seem quite fresh too.
