Seeking perfection on an ambitious three-day journey to reach Ben Nevis
This feature was first published in The Great Outdoors magazine, January 2017
Between 2008 to 2011, I lived in Lochaber. I don’t live there any more. Now I make visits north, losing the weather lottery more often than not. Sometimes I find myself wondering if all my greatest adventures in the Scottish mountains are behind me, but very occasionally I’m permitted one of those rare glimpses of perfection that have inspired me for all of my adult life.
