billbaggins: Track 4741 in area near A'Chioch, Glen Affric to Glen Moriston (Britain)
A'Chioch, A'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-choire on a claggy day
Length: 18.7km, Creator time taken: 7h 9m, Ascent: 1260m,
Descent: 1252m

Places: Start at NH0872512083, A\'Chioch, A\'Chraileag [A\'Chralaig], Stob Coire na Craileig [Stob Coire na Cralaig], Mullach Fraoch-choire, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

Having parked at a roughly surfaced layby at NH087 120 later than I had planned, through impatience, I walked past the little cairn marking the start of the ascent path to A'Chralaig. I came across the path farther up the hillside. Later, in clag, I walked past the spur towards A'Chioch so had to descend some steep ground and traverse across to it. The ridge walk out and back to A'Chioch was a delight as the clag cleared for a while and I had some excellent views towards the Sgúrr nan Conbhairean group. The ridge between A'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-choire is quite exposed in places and requires care. The path back to the road via An Caorann Mór was quite wet at first but improved greatly as I progressed. Both the SMC and Cicerone guidebooks describe the steep, grassy ascent slope of A'Chralaig as relentless. Others might use more colourful language.
