Scottish Munro

Several weeks ago, I joined two good friends of mine (Jeff Brannon on my left and Stephen Myers on my right) and climbed Buachaille Etive Mor (pronounced something like bookil but buckle will do).

BEM is one of the most famous Scottish munros (a Scottish mountain at least 3,000 feet) and derives its name from the Gaelic meaning 'Great Shepherd of Etive.' Nicely situated between Glen Coe and Glen Etive in the Highlands, its pyramid-like face provides for post-card perfect pictures and is one of the most beloved munros in Scotland.

The trail took us approximately six hours. But we took our time and savoured the sheer majesty of the scenary. For more pictures, click here. Posted by Picasa
