Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
Altitude
652 m (2139 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

Gav Man's 30th mountain! Okay it was yet another wee one but they all count. Got very lucky at the top - the cloud shifted just enough to let me see some of the other peaks in the area.

Fiarach has been in my sites for a while now.This one means i have completed all the hills accesed from Dalrig.The inttial route from the car park is the same as that for Beinn Dhubhcraig/Oss.Get to the Rail bridge.Cross it and turn sharp left and on to a small sharp sided hillock.Cross the burn and head straight up.There are a couple of false tops and plenty of knolls and spurs.The Burn was in spate and the wind was the test of the day.Soon the main peak of Fiarach comes in to view.It is a sharp pull up to the steep sided summit.Good views to all the hills in Crianlarich and over to Beinn Odhar and Beinn Dorain.Ben Challum in perfect view.The summit is slaby with a small Cairn perched on top.

Keep Fiarach for a clear day . Not only will it help navigation as the summit could be hard to locate in low cloud , but the views are excellent especially towards the Crianlarich Hills.
