Buachaille Etive  Argyll


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Buachaille Etive like this:

Buachaille-Etive (Gael. ` shepherds of Etive '), two mountains in the NE of Ardchattan parish, Argyllshire. Lying in the angle formed by Glen Etive and Glencoe, they are parted by the river Coupal, to the W of which Buachaille Etive Bheag culminates in Stob Dubh (3129 feet above sea-level); and, to the E, Buachaille Etive Mor in Stob Dearg (3345). Dorothy Wordsworth tells how from Kingshouse she and her brother 'often looked out of the window towards a huge pyramidal mountain, Buchal, at the entrance of Glencoe.'
