I met Jimmy and Mo at the layby opposite the entrance to Fannich Lodge from where we set off on our bikes to Fannich Lodge. We then took the path to Meall Gorm before the ridge walk to An Coileachan. Great walking in cracking conditions, with super views. I've really enjoyed my three outing in the Fannich, even though they were in mixed weather conditions and i'm looking forward to returning to do them again from differant routes. We had a bite to eat on An Coileachan before we made our way down south east ridge back to the bikes. On the cycle out we detoured round to An Cabar, where myself and Jimmy headed up but Mo bottled out and decided to cycle back out to the car. After summiting this little hill we returned to the bikes for the leisurely cycle out.
