Because of the heat I decided to tackle some of the smaller fells around Loweswater.
Started off in the parking layby at Loweswater, near the telephone box, wandered up the roads towards Fellbarrow before cutting off and going through the fields.
After a while we made it to the top of Fellbarrow and were rewarded with stunning views all around, particular highlight being Crummock and the mountains beyond, Haystacks, Red Pike etc.
We then wandered down toward Low Fell, eventually hitting the top and again; we were rewarded with excellent views over Loweswater.
After that we made our way back along a stream so the dog could have a paddle, and back along the shores of Loweswater to the car.
Nice few hours out. Definatley glad to go for the smaller fells, it was red hot!!!
