An Riabhachan is a massive ridged mountain to the north of Loch Mullardoch. It can be combined with neighbouring summits to make an epic day, whether tackled from Loch Mullardoch or from upper Glen Strathfarrar to the north.
Region: Loch Ness
Altitude: 1129 metres

Other routes and challenges
An alternative approach to the ridge is from the Gleann Innis an Locheil power station in Strathfarrar. The road up the glen is private but restricted car access is possible - see our Strathfarrar Munros page for details. This route is less convenient if An Socach is to be included as it leaves a long, rough pathless walk back.
For the truly superfit, the massive challenge hereabouts is the complete Mullardoch round, following ridges that can take in up to 12 Munros, usually accomplished as a lightweight backpacking route.
