I went back to Scotland to climb more Munros after an absence of nearly 15 years. This group of 4 can be done in a day yet I wanted the chance to backpack and camp out in the mountains, something I haven't done in decades!
Approach to the area in through Glen Cannich and there is a very useful 'ferry' run by Angus the Boatman who will (for a fee, £25/head) drop you anywhere along the loch for any walk you care to do.

Looking across to the ascent ridge of An Socach
This is a very remote area, prone to bad weather, so any walkers here need to be self sufficient and well able to navigate. Having said that, as climbing Munros is now very popular, most routes now have a track worn from heavy use.

The route up to An Riabhachan
We camped overnight in cold, windy wet conditions near the saddle between An Riabhachan and Sgurr na Lapaich and slept very well despite the conditions!

the next morning we were away arount 7am and completed the second half (see Part 2 track) in good shape!
