Scroll down to see photos of the walk
The Kirkstone Inn from St Raven's Edge . . .
with Windermere in one direction . . .
Red Screes across the road . . .
and Brothers Water in the opposite direction
Ill Bell and Froswick catch the sun . . .
while the mist brushes the top of Red Screes
From higher up we can just about see both ends of Windermere
The mist has moved over to Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick . . .
as we reach Stony Cove Pike
Thornthwaite Beacon can just be seen to the right with High Street to the left . . .
and it looks like Kidsty Pike is enjoying a little sun
Our next target is Hartsop Dodd . . .
with Ullswater coming into view
Sheila ticks another one off . . .
while I make my fourth visit
Making the most of the views down the valley . . .
and across the fell tops . . .
before retracing our steps - with Caudale Head and Red Screes to the right
A slight detour takes us to . . .
the Mark Atkinson Memorial
from where the sun highlights layers of fell tops . . .
together with Red Screes and Middle Dodd
As he wished, the memorial overlooks the Kirkstone Inn . . .
and the sun highlights the rocky outcrops on Red Screes
A large sheepfold . . .
beside Woundale Beck
Some fell ponies come to greet us . . .
as we walk along the valley bottom . . .
but we soon leave them behind
Looking back up the Woundale Valley - an interesting change to the planned route
