An Socach

Located on the north side of Glen Affric on the border between the districts of Inverness and Skye & Lochalsh in Highland Council Area, An Socach rises to a height of 921m (3022 feet). It is dwarfed by its neighbours, Mam Sodhail and Sgurr nam Ceathreamhnan, although is classified as a Munro. The mountain consists of three ridges with the north and east flanks being steep, in comparison to the gentler southwestern flank. The summit is flat although bouldery and is an effort to reach due to its long routes of approach. The name An Socach originates from Gaelic and means "the snout". There is another mountain called An Socach just 6 miles (10 km) to the south.
