Bagged as part of a guided hike with the legend that is Steve Fallon, he holds the record for having completed the Munros x 15 times now!! The hike started at the Mullardoch dam at 8am from where we were raced up the loch in 10mins in a very small boat. We hiked back over the four Munros west to east in this order: An Socach (1069m), An Riabhachan (1130m), Sgurr na Lapaich (1150m) & Carn nan Gobhar (992m). It was overcast most of the day with the sun only appearing on the final summit, which made a sunny and pleasant walk out along a new hydro track, 9:45 hours all in.chillyman819/06/2019
Left the boat at 0900 Summit at 1850 After descending to the bealach the snow was just a dusting The low cloud looked like it was here to stay & we would get a summit with a typical Scottish view. We took some photos at the first cairn rather disheartened that our luck had run out, suddenly the cloud lifted, amazing views & an amazing cairn came into view a one that deserved munro status, a quick run to the real summit to get the views. With Dianne Scorgie & Paola Cabrelli What an amazing day this is turning out to be So far the summits have been clear when we were thereLizzieG06/05/2019

Last of four Munros today in lovely calm cool weather. With GHC.Play2End03/05/2014
4th of 4. The scramble off Lapaich was pretty horrid at times, mainly due to cramps meaning I couldn't stress my hammys. Easy meander along to Gobhar before ascent steepens. Off via South (you'll lose the path) on steep grass before hitting road. 23km, 1860m, 11hr.bowzi20/07/2013
