Munros are a collection of mountains in Scotland whose peaks are 3,000 feet or over.  The summits are named after Sir Hugh Munro who in 1891 published the tables in the Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal.

We are spoilt for choice with Munros in Glencoe, The Glen Etive Hills and The Mamores and plenty more if you don’t mind a short drive out.

Please check weather conditions before heading out, carry suitable equipment with you and make sure someone is made aware of the route you will be taking and approximate return time.

There are several mountain guides in the area who can help you tackle those Munros which are outside of your comfort zone.

Glencoe Munros

Sgnor na h-Ulaidh (3261 ft)
Sgnor na h-Ulaidh is the forgotten Munro amongst the Glencoe peaks, being out of sight for most of the road through the Glen.  Combined with the Corbett Meall na Lighiche, it gives a day with superb views – but with a very steep ascent.
Buachaille Etive Mor – Stob Dearg (3350ft), Stob na Broige ( 3136ft)
Buachaille Etive Beag – Stob Dubh (3143ft), Stob Coire Raineach (3035ft)
Bidean Nam Bian (3773ft), Stob Coire Sgreamhach (3517ft)
Aonach Eagach – Meall Dearg (3127ft), Sgor nam Fiannaidh (3173ft)
Beinn a Bheithir –  Sgorr Dhearg (3360ft), Sgor Dhonuill (3284ft)
A fabulous mountain ridge walk taking in two Munros with stunning views; the route is marred however by the ascent and descent from the ridge on pathless heather and eroded paths.  Excellent walking on rocky ridges higher up.
