2nd time up the Gach! Weather was perfect - warm and not a cloud in the sky. Did with Paul,Adam and Mark. Cracking day out - nobody struggled. Really enjoyed this one. This time we descended to the NW ending up on the road about 2K up from the Clachaig - definitely the best descent option.scholesy03/06/2016

Anonach Eagach - with Rach. Weather was very good, windy and wet to begin but clearing as we reaches the top. Great ridge walk with some technical scrambling. Climbing down some of the rocks proving the most difficult bit. Great Day!scholesy29/09/2012
Anonach Eagach - amazing walk. First time I've done a ridge walk or proper scrambling and whilst it was doable there was a sustained stretch of scrambling which as a beginner required lots of concentration. That being said, thoroughly enjoyable and defo recommend to the adventurous walker.Rachel29/09/2012
