MTB to Fannich Lodge then anti clockwise round of 7 Fannich Munros. Solo.PeterD16/05/1994
With a friend. A long day in the Fannaichs. After ascending Beinn Liath Mhòr Fannaich went south of col slightly to ensure avoiding steep snow field, and then worked back towards col and hence to of Sgùrr Mòr. I descended alone to Càrn na Criche and back. We descended, still in mist, over Meall nam Peithirean, going slightly too far south (ensuring we did not get on to too steep a ground). We then navigated straight to the summit of Creachan Rairigidh. We continued to Meall Gorm and An Coileachan.pwbellarby16/04/1994

The four eastern Fannaich Munros RHW10/06/1986
With two friends. We left Lochdrum and went along track to Allt a Mhadaidh, then up the hillside to Beinn Liath Mhór Fannaich. We were now in thick mist. It was very cold. We reached Sgurr Mór; the mist lifted just before we reached the summit. My friends went on to Meall nam Peithirean. I went on to Carn na Criche. I found a path (not shown on map); it starts by a cairn on the col between Carn na Criche and Meall a Chrasgaidh. It proceeds a few degrees E of N, above cliffs and hence to Creag Raineach Mór. High up it crossed steep snow and ice fields needing ~100 steps cut (I had no crampons with me). Eventually I joined the path by Allt a Mhadaidh.pwbellarby08/12/1985
