Upper Eskdale Round

Today’s walk is a round of Upper Eskdale, one of the wildest and best valleys in the Lake District. At the head of Eskdale lie the ‘heads of state’ of English mountains, namely Scafell Pike, Sca Fell, Esk Pike and Bow Fell and this area offers some of the finest views anywhere.

Once again, it seems winter has returned with snow showers present throughout the walk and fresh snow on top of the high fells.
