Route Map

Today was the complete opposite of Tuesday's walk up to Red Screes; the sky was grey, not blue and there were frequent showers. I decided to stay low and have an easy walk around School Knott and Grandsire and although here wasn't too much in the way of views today, it was still worth the effort for a quick walk close to base camp Love the Lakes.

The ever increasing new tarn alongside the track from Cleabarrow. Casper tries to conceal himself from Dougal (bottom right).

It was a bit of a dreary walk up to School Knott here looking to Windermere across Heathwaite.
