With Lionel, Jennie, Tony. Wet all day.Chris Blake17/09/2018
With D from UllapoolRodge28/07/2018
Climbed solo. From A832 to north. Via Loch a Bhraoin, Allt Breabaig, 550m bealach, SE ridge of Sgurr Breac, Sgurr Breac, Toman Coinnich, A' Chailleach, Sron na Goibhre, Toll an Lochain, Allt an Goibhre, Leitir Fhearna, return to road via footbridge at end of Loch a Bhraoin. Misty over 700m and very windy, drizzle. Straightforward ridge walk. Nice easy path to 550m bealach. Rough ground on Leitir Fhearna with a deer fence (unmarked on map) to negotiate ... there are stiles in the SW and NE though if you can find them!jamessteel10022/07/2018

Second summit after A'Chailleach on a hot and sunny day. 6 hours 30 mins.Roblex24/05/2018
Solo. with A'Chailleach. McNeish route. His return route awful. Strongly recommend coming back same ridge as ascent (Druim Reidh) despite having to go back up a bit early on.highlandchief01/09/2017
From parking on A832, S past Loch a'Bhraoin, followed tracks up Leitir Fhearna and along Druim Reidh, contouring round to bealach below A'Chailleach and ascended it, return to bealach, over Toman Coinnich, onto Sgurr Breac and descended E ridge to bealach, thence N along stalkers' path. Crossed Allt Breabaig at footbridge near NH163748 (not marked on OS maps), rather than use fordkdbennett09/07/2017

From A832 layby, a round of Sgurr Breac, Toman Coinich and A'Chailleach.rhalstead30/06/2015
Followed the glen up to Beallach at GR173705. Fords marked on OS map do not exist so stayed on West side of stream, which was fine, although there is a bridge farther downstream (also not marked on OS maps). Up to Sgurr Breac on mainly grassy slopes with a tiny bit of scrambling. Across to Toman Coinnich and then A'Chailleach, back to Toman Coinnich and then down the ridge. First 3K was very gradual and then last bit very steep. Fantastic views today, no cloud, no wind.tsharp10/06/2015
Still a lot of snow on top. Walked up to col with a guy I met in the car park from Brora.tallblond08/05/2015

Climbed with Jon and Richard. Reasonably good conditions with a few patches of rain. Total 12h 55 mins for all 9.amcculloch18/08/2010
Fannichs route; mostly with Richard and Allan but split off from them after Sgurr Mor and headed North over Beinn Liath Mor Fannaich and down to A835 by the dam, whilst they proceeded to add the final 2 munros. Meanwhile I hitchiked to A832 to fetch car!jonbowyer18/08/2010
205th - Allan and Jon, from N on A832 (6km from Braemore Junction), overcast with patchy rain. Started out as a 5 bag, but extended to an epic 13hr day to complete all 9 of the Fannichs from W to E.RGibbs18/08/2010
With Steve, RodOik10/06/2010
With Rod and Grant again up Leiter Fhearna on what is now a significant steep path. Followed same route except took in the top this time. SS10/06/2010
Solo with Ben Ji...264th Munro. At last I finally get my last Fannaich!!from valley to the east, to not quite as far as the SE ridge. Steeply up hitting the ridge quite high up and now in cloud. Summit 1.00 ish and on to Toman Coinich. Ben-Ji finds a foot long deers lower leg and hoof on the bridge next to the loch and carries it three quarters of mile towards car, but laterly stopping regularly as it seems too heavy for him.vegibagger25/10/2009
