Description:

Set off from the car park along the path signposted to Glen Etive.  Before it drops to cross the burn in the glen, head off across the hill on a vague track until you hit a well defined path heading up (left) to the bealach off the wee Buachaille.  This is a steep climb up a newly created path to the bealach. 

From here the best views are to turn right (south) and head up onto the ridge.  After a short pull up to the first summit (but not a munro) you walk along a broad grassy ridge, until you climb the final pull onto the summit (the second cairn is 1m higher).  From here you wil have fantastic views down Glen Etive.

Retrace your steps to the bealach, and if you have the energy, climb up onto the second Munro which will give you similar views.  when descending back the way you came, make sure you do not stray too far to the right (west) as the path seems to go that way on descent but it is safer to keep to the left (east).

Descend from the Bealach back the way you came to the start.
