Time taken: 6 hours
An assault on England's highest peak was the order of the day due to Scotland being cold, wet & windy....I'll never complete the Munros at this rate
Left Glasgow 7am and walking by 10am.
Did the corridor route which turned out to be a pleasant stroll with no real difficulties. The walk back via Esk Hause was lovely, the lakes are very nice indeed.
Only downside was the amount of people present and some not suitably dressed...just like the tourist route up Nevis. But at least the folk were out walking...
Photos of our day.
The lakes make a nice alternative to the rugged barren landscapes of Scotland and should be visited at least once per year, and only a couple of hours from Glasgow.
Liked the look of Blencathra via Sharps edge and have this in mind when another opportunity arises.
