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

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
