Munros: An Coileachan, Meall Gorm

Date walked: 19/06/2024

Time taken: 5.5 hours

Distance: 31.7km

Ascent: 1381m

Parked at the layby west of Lochluichart where the tarred road leads in to Fannich Lodge, and cycled in to the old quarry just at the Fannich dam north end, left the bike here and went up steep slopes to arrive at point 572. crossed the outflow of the little lochan and went up the sometimes steep grassy rake that leads to the point 797 summit. then just ambled along enjoying the views down Loch Fannich toward Torridon, and north toward the Ullapool hills.A quick visit to Meall Gorm then descended the clear stalker path to Fannich Lodge, the 4km tramp along the tarred road to the bike was not a lot of fun, but I did have the wind on my back so can't complain, cycle out took 15 minutes thanks to the back wind.
No photos as I somehow set my camera to a kind of motion setting, I dont know blooming technology, beats me every time.
GPS worked though so heres the track.
