Forcan Ridge & The Saddle & Sgurr na Sgine

Late Entry - Paul and I did this a couple of weeks ago


A great day mountaineering with Paul in Glenshiel.


Just past a small bridge on the Glen Shiel road we parked and climbed uphill to the Forcan Ridge where Paul put his crampons on. We scrambled along the ridge, ice axe in hand, snow and ice on the rocks, to the Munro summit of The Saddle 1010m.


Paul led on, practicing his navigation across the snowy ground, and we climbed up to Sgur na Sgine 946 for our second Munro of the day. We walked down to collect the cars and stopped the night in the bothy bunkhouse by Kintail Lodge hotel - wonderfully welcoming and warm after a winter skills mountain day.
