Route description: The Saddle, Forcan Ridge and Sgurr na Sgine

Forcan Ridge is brilliant, decent scramble.
Approach Notes: Following the route description might be best bet as I opted to cut straight through the bog, WSW to the bottom of the hill and then contoured round left to pick up the path. The bog was a bit soft, I don't think it made any difference to time, plus had to jump a fence.
Descent Notes: The path down the shoulder of Faochag is good with great views, but if pressed for time I think returning to col and taking the same way back down as used in ascent is quite a bit quicker.
