Buachaille Etive Beag is the less well-known little brother of Buachaille Etive Mor to the east. A good path leads from the car park into the Lairig Eilde for 500 metres before turning south and climbing steeply for 1.5km to the col on the ridge. A short, sharp climb takes you to the first Munro, Stob Coire Raineach, less than 500m away at the northern end of the ridge. The summit provides great views down Glen Coe and across to the Blackwater Reservoir. A straightforward ridge walk of less then 2km leads to the second Munro, Stob Dubh, at the southern end of the ridge. From here you have excellent views of nearby Bidean nam Bian to the west and down to Loch Etive in the south-west. The descent retraces the outward route to the col and down to the car park.
