Walk: Grasmere, Winterseeds, Seat Sandal, Raise Beck, Grisedale Tarn, Fairfield, Great Rigg, Stone Arthur, Grasmere

Distance:  8 miles Ascent:  3,600 feet
Weather: Mainly cloudy with some sunny spells
Accompanied by:

on my own

Comments: A pleasant day with some great views, but windy on the tops. The path by Winterseeds gives some good views of the route up the nose of Seat Sandal. Took the path round the wall to the left of Little Tongue Gill but wonder if there is now access through the metal gate lower down as the gate is no longer locked? Rest of the route was straightforward, but never can work out exactly which 'bump' is meant to be Stone Arthur
