Lovely weather - perfect for walking
Sue and I still had An Socach and An Riabhachan to walk having cover Sgurr na Lapaich and Carn nan Gobhar back 20 yrs ago on an aborted attempt at the loch mullardoch 12
As we all would be going (DSALJ and skye) I wanted to do sometime interesting and saw details for Angus the boatman on the loch and arranged for him to drop us off as far up the loch as possible - water levels were exceedingly low and we were dropped at the shoulder of An Socach
It was a bit of a trudge up An Socach but worth it when we go to the higher slopes - great views - we then followed the ridge path all the way to Carn nan Gobhar then the steep decent to pick up the new track to the Dam
speed 3.7km/h moving ,moving time 6.05
total time 7.39 distance 23.7 ( slight difference between strava and sat map)
