Cairn Table

Cairn-Table.gpx Solo walk. With football coaching this morning & needing to be home before my wife went out left me a 5 hour window to fit a walk in. After a bit of research Cairn Table fitted the bill with Muirkirk, which I’d never been to, being around a 45 minute drive away. Lucky to squeeze...

First Foray Into The Central Fells

Walla-Crag-Bleaberry-Fell--High-Seat.gpx Family walk from our holiday at Keswick Reach. Originally hoped for Skiddaw, Little Man & perhaps Lonscale Fell but the MWIS forecast of low thick cloud on the higher tops was correct. Left these for another trip as no chance of any views. Pleasant walk ...
