The 2016 Challenge, day 5: Killin to Fortingall (8)

The traverse from Beinn Ghlas to Ben Lawers involves the narrow ridge that is Creag nan Gabhar; and in the swirling mist it really did feel as though I was walking into sheer nothingness. I was glad that I had walked this way before, as it gave me confidence that there WAS a safe path all the way. Nevertheless, the feelings and sensations of isolation, up on this ridge with hardly any visibility, were quite extraordinary. I was grateful that there was no air movement to speak of, as even a mild wind would have made this very uncomfortable walking indeed.
