Saddle and Sgurr na Sgine

Guided day on the Forcan Ridge and Sgurr na Sgine

The bold outline of the Forcan Ridge rises dramatically above the western end of Glen Shiel. The ridge line travels up to the summit of The Saddle and other peaks from where vast views stretch out to Skye and the Outer Hebrides. To the west of this superb mountain is Sgurr na Sgine, a fine peak leading onto the South Glen Shiel Ridge.

We're here for a day summit-bagging and easy rock-scrambling up the crests !
