Dougal was in for the op that any male wouldn’t like to think too much about today (gulp!) so it was down to young Fletcher to be #1 Fell Dog for the day. They were big paws to fill but Fletcher had no problems carrying it off – today he experienced snow and ice for the first time. Winter has struck on the high ground and the wind was icy coild, through to the bone on the tops but when the leaden skies cleared, what fabulous views there were to be had.

It was nice to be out early on such a morning for a walk up to Lingmoor Fell, the views were lovely and the wind was a cold one. Although I haven’t been on the fells as much as I would like for almost a year, things are about to change in April when stridingedge.net returns to the fells properly with a bit of luck. Thanks to all for bearing with me so far, needs must and all that…
Once again it was overcast this morning but with a high pressure hanging over the Lake District, it ensured the lakes and tarns remained calm and made for some excellent reflections as I was passing. Once up on the summit of Lingmoor Fell, the clouds eventually caught up with us and the higher fells all seemed to have their head in the clouds today.
I’ve been very busy of late and it’s been a little while since I was out on the fells but I managed to make it up onto Lingmoor Fell today. The weather was mixed and it felt a little fresh up there but it was good to be out in the fresh air with only my thoughts for company (plus Dougal and Casper of course!).
It was certainly wet and windy when I set off for Lingmoor Fell this morning; I had thought of going higher but gave that a miss when the weather was so bad. It did eventually clear up a little and the wind died down but the temperature had noticeably dropped since last week. I always enjoy this fell and this direct route from Bleatarn House certainly seems to be the quickest way of getting up there.
It was wet and drizzly for a walk up to Lingmoor Fell this morning and the clouds were down in the valleys below. This is a surprisingly quick way to the top with the ascent being directly to the summit cairn. I decided to miss the normally easy to get to Side Pike as the weather was worsening. Instead I took a short cut and descended back to the road at the depression between Lingmoor Fell and Side Pike.
Sunshine and blue skies again today for a short walk up to Lingmoor Fell, one that is short in stature but offers really fine views of the surrounding high fells. Casper and Angus both came today, Angus being particularly fond of this walk as there are two opportunities for a decent swim (the hardy soul!).
The sun was shining again this morning for a walk up to Lingmoor Fell, but there was an icy wind, perhaps bringing snow with it as forecast; the clouds had certainly gathered over the fells by the end of the walk. There are great views from this little fell, nestling in between the Langdales and the Coniston fells.
