Having just completed a walk around Whinlatter quicker than I though I would I decided to have a quick trip up through Buttermere and then over Knott Rigg and Ard Crags. The weather had improved quite a bit from the morning the best of it seeming to be coming from the South to the North of the Lakes.

Considering this walk can be done in a relatively short time, you certainly get plenty of bang for your buck!
