Buachaille Etive Mor

Buachaille Etive Mor is the recognisable pyramidal mountain at the head of Glen Etive. It is often depicted on postcards and calendars and is a popular mountain with hill walkers and climbers. The mountain has four tops. The main top is Stob Dearg, at 3352ft (1022m), which is classed as a Munro (Scottish mountain over 3000ft). The tops of Buachaille Etive Mor are all found on a ridge extending nearly five miles southwest of Stob Dearg and ending at Stob na Broige (3136ft / 956m), which is also classed as a Munro.

The name comes from the Gaelic for 'the great herdsman of Glen Etive'.
