The 2016 Challenge, day 5: Killin to Fortingall (6)
As I followed this path, my heart was slowly sinking; for the cloud showed no sign of lifting and, indeed, if anything it was closing in. I had wanted another fine, clear day with spectacular views from the Lawers ridge, but it didn't appear that I was going to get one. There was no wind to speak of, and the clouds were showing no inclination to drop their precipitation, so I did not think that a diversion onto my FWA was called for. After all, there would be a clear, well-defined Munrosits' path all the way along this ridge. But all the same, I was a little apprehensive about this lack of visibility. On the positive side, though, it would limit my water consumption, which had to be a good thing as there were no resupply sources up on the ridge.
