The Glen Etive Munros

Saturday 10th - Sunday 11th September 2022

About the event:

Five Munros lying east of Loch Etive from an impressive circuit rising abruptly from the shoreline. Ben Starav is the dominant peak in the range with steep drops down to Loch Etive, not unlike a fjord, and great views in all directions.


With sea-level start and a height of just under 1100m to ascend, there is a hard, demanding slog to reach the summit of Ben Starav when approached from Loch Etive. Glas Bheinn Mhor does feel like a subsiduary top of Beinn Starav, but the drop and reascent between the two is fairly significant, with some easy scrambling on the way. Beinn nan Aighenan is fairly remote peak and often bagged on its own, however although including it with Ben Starav and Glas Bheinn Mor does require a detour, it will only add around two hours to the day.


To the north of Glas Bheinn Mhor, Stob Coir'an Albannaich is a bulky hill, with corries north and south giving tricky navigation regardless of direction approached. Meall nan Eun is a small grassy hill, but careful route selection in needed to avoid crags when descending.


The general plan - We’ll be meeting at 0800 on each day.


Day 1 Munros:

Beinn Starav (1078m / 3,537ft)

Beinn nan Aighenan (960m / 3,150ft)

Glas Bheinn Mhor (997m / 3,271ft)


Day 2 Munros:

Stob Coir’ an Albannaich (1,044m / 3,425ft)

Meall nan Eun (928m / 3,045ft)
