The main eastern range of the Fannichs is a magnificent ridge-walk taking in four Munros, including the highest, shapely Sgùrr Mòr. The price to be paid however is the rugged and boggy approach across the moors - and, more especially, the long return walk from An Coileachan.


A rather wet approach leads to some excellent ridgewalking higher up, with some steep ground. The descent from the fourth Munro is often pathless, very boggy and very long.
