On reaching Great Shunner Fells summit shelter I didn't hang around (it was freezing) so I followed the fence that takes you all the way to the minor road that runs past the Butter Tubs.I crossed this to climb up Lovely Seat returned to the road and headed back along the road to Thwaite.

Nice post, looked a bit chilly on the summits but always great to have them to yourself

The rest of the walk was fine just from the summit of Great Shunner Fell to the road was treacherous.

I does add to the challenge. Even the gentle yorkshire dales can throw Scottish Highlands conditions your way.

It's a great walk to do from Hardraw. I just followed the Pennine Way up to Great Shunner Fell, then down to the summit of the Buttertubs Pass, followed by the short climb up to Lovely Seat. From there, it's a pathless walk across Abbotside Common before dropping down into Sedbusk and a short walk back to Hardraw.
A great little walk ...
