A circuit of the Western Fannichs

By Julian Paren

This 12.5 mile walk takes in two Munros, Sgurr Breac and the higher A Chailleach. Route finding is straightforward and the only difficulty is descending the steep nose back to above Loch a Bhraoin when the ground is greasy. On a number of occasions the weather has been dry in the Fannichs when An Teallach has looked decidedly wet. There are good views to be had from this route. Some books recommend coming off A Chailleach by its northern ridge and descending beside Sron na Caibhre, but that may have even steeper terrain to descend than is found at the end of Druim Reidh. The round took my daughter and just over seven hours. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page Link .
