Following the A82 northwest from Rannoch Moor towards Glen Coe, the road passes the White Corries and approaches Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag at which point a single track road turns left down in to Glen Etive.

Starting at Buachaille Etive Mor this road is 14 miles long and the scenery is breath taking. The main ridge of the Buachaille flanks the glen for the first four miles.

Driving along the road on the left hand side is the River Etive, with the most beautiful waterfalls coming off the mountains you will ever see in Scotland.

The Glen is full of red deer and roe deer, and all species of birds.

The first half of the journey, to Dalness, is between the mountains and the open land but as you approach the second half of the journey its more wooded and secluded till you come to Loch Etive. Just south of Dalness, at the foot of Stob Dubh, is the small Lochan Urr.
