Curved Ridge Outline
Driving towards Fort William across the wild expanse of Rannoch Mor a triangular mountain comes into view guarding the entrance to one of Scotland’s finest viewpoints; Glencoe. This epic mountain is called Buachaille Etive Mor which translates as ‘The Herdsman of Etive’. It stands at the head of two of Scotland’s finest Glens: Glencoe to the West and Glen Etive to the South, it is one of the most iconic and photographed mountains in Scotland. Our route to the summit looks improbable from this angle but snaking up on ‘The Buachaille’s North East flank is Curved Ridge: an outstanding grade 2/3 scramble boasting all the hallmarks of a memorable adventure.
