There was a mixed bag of weather this morning for the gentle walk from Boot in Eskdale, out to Burnmoor Tarn for a view of the high fells, and back to Boot via Boat How. There were frequent snow showers with plenty of snow in evidence above 500m.

This walk follows the one described in Wainwright’s Boat How chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 178.
