Bac an Eich
Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
Bac an Eich is in a very remote area though the Strathconon road provides fairly straightforward access. The summit ridge rises steeply above Loch Toll Lochain, with Sgurr Toll Lochain providing the shortest and steepest route of the ascent. The Walkhighlands route has easier gradients, making best use of stalkers' paths which encircle the peak.
Region: Loch Ness
Altitude: 849 metres

Other routes and challenges
As mentioned already, there is an alternative ascent via Sgurr Toll Lochain which is shorter but steeper than the route described as a circuit above.
Any combination with An Sidhean would make an epic route.
