Kintail Lodge-Sgurr Leac nan Each-The Saddle- Forcan ridge, grand mountain walk. This ridge looked an obvious way back to Kintail Lodge- mountain walking being preferable to road walking. I must have looked at the 1 inch to 1 mile map reproduced in Poucher though, as I was surprised how arduous it was, and thought it didn't really improve the day's walk. I had no idea about relative hills then. Of course nowadays I'd know to bag it with good grace. Fine,clear day.pwheeler20/05/1984
