Weather looks good today started at 8am then headed double quick time up the path by the time I got to the top Gav was already half way up his Graham the rest of us notso keen personnel had a long rest . Once Gav got backdown we made our way to the base of the Forcan Ridge . Pigeon Gav and Chris doing the ridge Me and Jake taking the Doggy route . All for me to do was to follow the dyke around the base of the ridge to the beallach then headed up the trig a well trodden path to the base of the hill then straight up to the trig caught a few glimpses of the gang on the ridge . Then onto the cairn met the intrepid hill climbers then back to the trig for a breather ( catch pigeons report on the ridge no Forcan way was I doing that or even the dog with his 4wd) .
Once the euphoria of the ridge faded it was down to the beallach then up to S Na S which took about an hour a wee break then headed back followed the path to the hill over looking the road then down and down and down a few more muscles in the legs I got back to the car at 1540 about 5mins after the rest a change of tops boots off a poisoning of the ozone layer then the drive back to Rosyth . A good weekend out thanks to Pigeon Gav Chris and Kev the walkers and the base campers Charlie Chistine and Senga .
