2/4 - all four Munros north of Loch Mullardoch - a fine high ridge walk in good conditions, albeit windy. Descended to wildcamp at the Western end of Loch Mullardochwychwood26/07/2020
Showers.Chris Blake18/07/2019
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 1655 Lots of new snow from 700m Snow showers with lots of hot sun With Dianne Scorgie & Paola Cabrelli What an amazing day this is turning out to be Fantastic descent to the bealach but hated the climb up a lot of snow on the ascent from col Another summit clearing for us when we were there.LizzieG06/05/2019
