We started the walk in Eskdale and made our way up past Burnmoor tarn and then up onto Scafell. On the climb, we had views over Wastwater, Wasdale and Pillar. Near the top, the clouds surrounded us which didn’t look promising but fortunately, the clouds cleared and we had some great views.Read More
I put it to the vote on my Instagram page again and you wanted to see views from on top of Coniston Old Man, Dow Crag and the next hill on the horizon. After checking the map I realised it was called White Maiden. I’d never done it before so it looked like a good one to try.Read More

Glad I took the torch as it’s a long walk down in the darkRead More
