Arrived at Loch Quoich at 2 o'clock and decided to camp just before the dam. We would climb Gairich, then pitch the tents on our return. We set off at 2.30 across the dam and over the boggy path leaving it just before the forrest and climbing up the Druim na Geid Salaich ridge and onto Gairich. It was a easy enough route with a easy scramble near the summit. The views were superb from the summit, the best i've seen so far from any summit. After a cuppa and some photos we headed back down the route we came up, back to the "campsite" to set up camp. The weather was cloudy with perfect visibility. 5hrs to complete.
On the 2nd day we climed Gleouraich and Spidean Mialach, by the path beside the Allt Coire Peitireach. There is a sign on the road indicating the start of this walk. The path went all the way to Gleouraich then round the ridge to Spidean Mialach. We left Spidean Mialach on a path that was boggy in places, keeping to the west side of Loch Fearna and following the Allt a' Mheill back down to road with a 1km walk back to the car. The weather was cloudy with the odd drizzle and occasional low cloud. Visibility was good. 5hrs 30 mins.
Day 3 we climbed Sgurr a' Mhaoraich, which also had a path straight to the summit and a marker post at the side of the road indicating the start of the walk. We went up and down the same route, via Bac nan Canaichean and Sgurr Coire nan Eiricheallach. 4hrs 30mins.
