Scout Scar and Cunswick Scar

We took a walk from Kendal to Scout Scar via Cunswick Scar today, following the Wainwright walk in the Outlying Fells book. The starting point is better nowadays for those with cars than the original as there is a free and convenient car park adjacent to Serpentine Woods. The weather started off really dull but soon turned into a rare beautiful summer’s day. As Wainwright said ‘This is a walk above others : a pleasure every step of the way’…and we did indeed ‘…take sandwiches and make a day of it’.

Scout Scar

Today’s walk follows Wainwright’s Scout Scar chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 2.
