Sgurr Mor and the eastern Fannichs

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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


A rather wet approach (no path in parts) leads to some excellent ridgewalking higher up, with some steep ground. The descent from the fourth Munro is pathless, very boggy and very long.
