The second walk of the day we parked in Buttermere on the NT car park

After a short walk on the road past Crag Houses we turned right onto the fell and could see the ridge above us called Low Bank and the summit to the left of the rock outcrop
Summit to the left
This walk was all about the views in the Buttermere valley, an area my husband loves and thinks its the best views in the Lakes. As we gained height the valley opened up to us.
First view of Buttermere
High Stile range
Crummock Water, Mellbreak to right
Higher still we could see the black of Haystacks and the two Gables behind
Towards Haystacks
The higher Gables behind Haystacks
To the front right we had the dark mass of Grasmoor and Whiteless Pike nearer to us, looking back down the ridge was Robinson summit behind High Snockrigg
Grasmoor and Whiteless Pike
The ridge was laid out in front of us towards the rock outcrop
The ridge with Mellbreak behind me
We can't get enough of the view towards Buttermere
The Gables etc dwarf Haystacks
We now reached the rock outcrop with a short climb before the run to the summit

On the summit there was a clear view all around
Towards God's country

A moment on the summit at 355m
On the way back one last photo of the bulk of Robinson
A nice walk with so many wonderful views :D

Some fantastic photos there, Susan, of what is a fine, wee hill in a beautiful setting.

You look very pensive in that penultimate photo though. You're either deciding on your next Wainwright or deciding what to have for your tea. In my case, it's usually the latter ... :lol:
