Date: 16th September 2017
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September 2017.
We will meet at 0830 on Saturday morning at the layby on the A835 Braemore junction with the A832 and transfer into as few vehicles as possible as parking is limited 5km further on at the start of our walk.
This is a level 3 walk across the nine Munro summits of the Fannichs, split into two big mountain days of about 25km each.
You will need to have a good level of fitness for this walk which is mostly pathless on the walk in\out with some areas of boggy ground and mild scrambling to contend with and a significant amount of ascent, some 2,500m across the two days. Please do not underestimate the level of fitness you will need for these two demanding days.
Day one - Walk from the A832 near to Loch a' Bhraoin, south, into the Fannichs. We will walk in an anticlockwise direction taking the summits of A' Chailleach, Sgurr Breac, Sgurr nan Each, Sgurr nan Clach Geala and Meall a' Chrasgaidh. 25km and potentially a 10 hour day.
Day two - From the Torrandhu Bridge car park on the A835 at the end of Loch Glascarnoch we cross the road south into the forest and follow the Abhainn a' Ghiubhais Li river for a short distance before picking a route south up onto An Coileachan, our first Munro of the day. Then clockwise to Meall Ghorm, Sgurr Mor and finally Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich before descending back towards the river and out to the carpark. Another 25km and potentially 10 hour day.
