Detailed route description and map

The Loch Mullardoch Munros circuit

Other routes and challenges

The quickest route to Sgurr na Lapaich 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.
