Route description: The Saddle, Forcan Ridge and Sgurr na Sgine
Munros included on this walk: Sgurr na Sgine, The Saddle
Date walked: 15/09/20195 people think this report is great. Register or Login free to be able to rate and comment on reports (as well as access 1:25000 mapping).
And it was such a well spent holiday, Fisherfields, Arran, Kintail. With saying goodbye comes the shaking of hands, so ofcourse my last walk would have to be hands on.
I had some trouble finding the start of the route (one layby too far east and a river in spate) so the first 30 minutes of the walk were spent cursing through mud and being gazed at by curious highland cows. After finding the path upwards no problems were met all day, sun, cloud & showers each took their turn, I had the ridge to myself and enjoyed a perfect day.
I will be back again in April, and I can hardly wait.
I hardly think the Forcan ridge needs introduction, so here's a simple short video and some photos. Enjoy.

The Saddle and ridge looked brilliant when I saw them in the flesh for the first time a few months ago on the way to Ratagan, then again from Beinn Bhan I can't wait to get up there, I'll have to move it up my to-do list now.

Thanks for your kind words. Any walkreports for your walks coming up? That would really be appreciated.
