|Comments:||I had been planning to do this walk for some time as it was a long time since I had done it. As we had had a few dry and hot days I thought it would be an ideal day to enable me to avoid any boggy ground. This turned out to be the case and there were only a couple of boggy sections between Wolf Fell and Fiendsdale Head. These were avoided on the way back by using the path on the opposite side of the fence, i.e. on the left of the fence as you look at the map. There were some good views as far as Morecambe Bay but these were too hazy for photographs.|
