An Socach is an exceptionally remote Munro at the head of Glen Affric. It is really the eastern termination of the east ridge of Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan and is often climbed with that peak, though it can be ascended on its own as a long day from the road end in Glen Affric.
Region: Loch Ness
Altitude: 921 metres

Other routes and challenges
A stalkers path also leads up to Bealach Coire Ghaidheil to the east of An Socach, enabling a simple traverse of the hill - through obviously all approachs are very long.
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.
