This was our very first venture together into the hills. A pretty straightforward hillwalk on A W's favourite fell with some fine views. A pity the top was cloaked in cloud.

That's a great little starter. Pity about the weather but that's what keeps you coming back ever hopeful of seeing a scene you didn't on the last visit. I hope it's spurred you on to plan many more days on the fells.
