The Buachaille Etive Mòr is a well-known mountain in the Highlands of Scotland at the end of Glen Etive. It can easily be seen from the A82 road by traveling from Glasgow to Glen Coe and Fort William. The River Etive flows right in front of the giant mountain and has some nice little waterfalls.

Important note: This spot obviously suffered from too many people wanting to take the very same photo, resulting in an area of churned-up mud instead of the original pristine heather due to too much footfall that did hurt the environment (see photos below). Please think twice if you really need to take this photo as well and make sure to check out other beautiful spots in this region as an alternative.

Travel Information

A small parking spot for 4-5 cars is available on the left side of the road right before crossing the bridge. The waterfalls of Buachaille Etive Mòr are on the right side of the road and just a few footsteps from the parking spot away.

Please make sure though to not leave the existing official paths, because this area already suffered a lot from photographers wanting to take a photo at the very same spot.

Please, please, take your photographs from the road and do not walk over the moor to the waterfall spot. Since people have been encouraged to walk over the moor to take photos at the waterfall there are photographers at that spot every evening and morning. What was, until a few years ago, an area of pristine heather and sphagnum moss with rare plants is now just a waterlogged, churned up, wasteland (see my photographs). Instead of selfishly capturing the beauty in one direction, turn around and see how much you are destroying the beauty elsewhere.

Good hint, I just added an overlay to the map and I will add some info about that to the spot itself.
