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
