Scafell Pike and Great End

When you look at climbing mountains inevitably you will look to the highest and want to climb it. Scafell Pike is that such a mountain in England. This route was via the Corridor Route to the summit and back over the boulder field to Great End and then down Grains Gill. A fantastic 10 miles!


Cooler walk than yesterday, unfortunately the warm sunshine is replaced by cloudy, hazier conditions. The views to Derwent Water however are just as good and the layering of fells to the south is superb. This has to be the best view in the Lake District with minimal effort.


Family walk up a cracking little fell near to our base in Braithwaite. The views down to Derwent Water were spectacular and it was a fine way to spend a couple of hours. Topped off with a nice pint in the pub to finish.

Hallin Fell

We had spent a week near Fort William in Scotland and the long drive back to Plymouth required a stop off and some leg stretching. This fell, not too far from the M6, provided a perfect walk before tea in Windermere. The views down along Ullswater and into Martindale from the top are excellent.
