Seatoller, Castle Crag and Lodore Falls

This was a beautiful day and I wanted to make the most of it.
I headed straight from Borrowdale Youth Hostel and followed another route I had found in a guidebook.
I started off towards Seatoller and then when signposted for Honnister I started to climb and followed a clear path to Castle Crag.
A bit of a scramble got me to the top of the Crag and I had the place to myself for a few minutes.

There were great views over Derwent Water.

I nervously scrambled down again and continued on to pick up part of the Cumbrian Way leading to cross the Derwent River.
Due to major flood repairs at Lodore Hotel, I took a detour to the falls.
I headed back hugging the road with a minor detour to see the Bowder Stone.
A wee break in Rosthwaite allowed me to enjoy tea and a scone before returning to the hostel.
