Tuesday, 17th. August, 1982
This was the ninth day of a self-contained and unsupported trip with my brother, Nick. We had started in Lochluichart on Monday, 9th. August and, having arced through the Fannichs and then travelled south through Achnasheen, Gleann Fiodhaig and Strathfarrer, we found ourselves camped on the northern shore of Loch Mullardoch in heavy showers with fourteen Munros and nearly ninety miles under our belts. Today, the aim was to add another four Munros to the tally.

An early start saw us heading directly up grassy slopes onto the top of Creag Dubh in misty conditions and then heading west over Carn nan Gobhar, the terrific, isolated pyramidal ridge of Sgurr na Lapaich and on to the two Ans. A brief entry in my diary for the trip records that it was "...too cold and wet for photographs - but a fine, long day in grand mountains" and I remember views down to the loch from craggy ridges through drifting curtains of mist before an easy romp back down the south east ridge of An Socach brought some long, tedious miles back to our tent along the loch shore.
Tomorrow we were aiming to head south and west over some more big hills to Affric.
