The Fannichs are a range of mountains in Wester Ross in the land between Loch Fannich, Loch a' Bhraoin and Loch Glascarnoch. This area is split between a detached part of Cromartyshire and Ross-shire, approximately half in each shire.

The Fannichs, though small in area, have no fewer than 9 munros, which is to say mountains of over 3,000 feet, and 4 munro tops.

The munros are:

The tops are:

  • Meall nam Peithirean, 3,196 feet
  • Carn na Criche, 3,153 feet
  • Toman Coinich, 3,068 feet
  • Meall Gorm southeast top, 3,025

All but An Coileachan are in the Fannich Forest (the Cromartyshire part) or on its border, and An Coileachan's lower slopes are in that part too. The Forest is not a wooded area but a forest in the mediæval sense or an open, unfenced area.
