About the event

A true Scottish Classic - a full round of all nine Munro summits of the Fannichs, split into two big mountain days of about 25 km each. A beautiful and stunning area that takes effort to get into but is rewarded with excellent views and great walking.

You will need to have a good level of fitness for this walk which is mostly pathless on the walk in\out with some areas of boggy ground and a significant amount of ascent, some 2,500m across the two days. 

The walking between the summits is surprisingly easy going with some stalkers paths and more gentle slopes than you might expect. It's the getting into and out of the hills that takes it out of the legs! Please do not underestimate the level of fitness you will need for these two demanding days.

Day 1: Walk from the A832 near to Loch a' Bhraoin, south, into the Fannichs. We will take in the summits of A' Chailleach, Sgurr Breac, Sgurr nan Each, Sgurr nan Clach Geala and Meall a' Chrasgaidh. 25 km and potentially a 11 hour day.

Day 2: From the Torrandhu Bridge car park on the A835 at the end of Loch Glascarnoch we cross the road south into the forest and follow the Abhainn a' Ghiubhais Li river for a short distance before picking a route south up onto An Coileachan, our first Munro of the day. Then clockwise to Meall Ghorm, Sgurr Mor and finally Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich before descending back towards the river and out to the carpark. Another 25 km and potentially an 11 hour day.

We will meet at 0800 on Saturday morning at the layby on the A835 Braemore junction with the A832 and transfer into as few vehicles as possible as parking is limited 5km further on at the start of our walk.

We've graded this adventure as red because both the distance and ascent on both days is pretty mega. The terrain itself is not overly challenging, albeit rough in places, but you do need stamina and a good level of fitness to take part. If you have any questions about this adventure or want to discuss anything then please get in touch ahead of booking.
