Quite cold for August and very breezy up on the summit but brilliant walk, great views and more mountain hares than a Watership Down covention (ok Watership Down was rabbits but you get my gist).
Walked by Sarah(14) David(14) Alice (11) and Sam (11)

Not too far to go...and the ground gets stonier from here as we begin to enter Mountain Hare Metropolis
