/ Easy Winter walking - Glen Etive
> This is a good short day: Sron na Lairig, Stob Coire Sgreamhach, Bidean, Beinn Maol Chaluim
When we did Sron na Lairig and Stob Coire Sgreamhach it took over 10 hours! Waist-deep powder probably contributed ;-)
> The main thing to beware of, especially in winter, is the descent SW off Bidean--this is *very* steep and unless it's well frozen will also be loose
We did this in ascent last week. There are lots of crags about, most of which can be avoided by keeping well to the right (in descent) where it's mostly steep grass - the Harveys map shows it well.
By whatever route, I'd second the recommendation of Beinn Maol Chaluim, a cracking little hill.
Stob Dubh on the other side of the glen also makes a good easy day.
