vgc despite exposed location. No cap or plug. Cold blustery day. Note the south cairn is an Intersected Station. Combined with a few other summits although given the weather I didn't repeat any of the other Munros

My Munro #230 climbed alone. The logistics of bagging the Munros in this area are made difficult by the limited access to Strathfarrar - here's how I did it...asked the gatekeeper for vehicular access (happily granted) and drove to the foot of the Allt Coire Mhuillidh, set up camp then drove back past the gatehouse with the bike in the back of the car, then cycled back to the campsite, left the bike by the tent and set off on foot to bag Sgurr na Ruaidhe, Carn nan Gobhar, Sgurr a' Choire Ghlais and Sgurr Fhuar-thuill before a long walk back to the tent. Weather wasn't great, saw a very impressive water spout between Gobhar and Choire Ghlais. Next day used the bike to cycle to the power station at Gleann Innis an Loichel to compleat The Lapaich Munros, returning to camp very late and cycling back to the car the following morning. 2 Nights out, 8 Munros, 3 TPs, awesome adventure!

Ascended via Sgurr na Rhaidhe and Carn an Gobhar. Trig between two large cairns. Lunchstop at southern cairn. Cloud base 800 metres so no views. Returned via Craig Ghorm a' Bhealaich, Sgurr Fhuar-thuill and Sgurr na Muice.
