Loop of the 4 eastern Fannichs. Weather started off promising but spent day in the clag above 800m. Long boggy walk out to car.cjo04/10/2019
With JW. From West end of Loch Glascarnoch, up Abhainn an Torrain Duibh to Creag Dhubh Fannaich, Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich, Sgurr Mor, Meall Gorm, An Coileachan. Long descent with painful knee but good views!robertgn08/01/2019
Climbed solo from A835 west of Loch Glascarnoch. Followed path on the West Bank of the Abhainn an Torrain Duibh (not marked on map). Ignore the track through the forest. Continue alongside Abhainn a Ghiuthais Li as far as the footbridge (also unmarked) at 252712. Ascended Meallan Buidhe (skirted summit), An Coileachan, Meall Gorm SE top and main top, Meall nam Peithirean, Sgurr Mor, Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich. Return via Craig Dhubh Fannaich (summit skirted) and back alongside outward route. Excellent conditions. Fine walk but long and rough walk in/out. Luckily very dry conditions - bogs would hinder progress.jamessteel10024/07/2018

Sunny but coldish. went light weight to bag these 4 Munros quickly.Long walk in and out over rough, wet ground. As per typical, cloud came down on this impressive Munro just as I neared the final approach and lifted as I left.Jhimmy09/07/2015
From Lochdrum a round of Carn na Criche, Sgurr Mor, Meall nam Peithirean and Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich.rhalstead28/06/2015
From the last munro, BLMF, I headed south west along the ridge into the murk and got confused. The minor top (212717) is not the summit! As it cleared I saw my error and headed for Sgurr Mor. Now a lovely clear sunny day!Play2End14/09/2014
4th of 7. Can't recall much other than there wasn't much in the way of visibility and anyone thinking of tackling these as a 7 or 9....they're big hills, and it's a lot of ascent!bowzi14/06/2014
