Ullscarf

Ullscarf wasn’t really on the agenda today but I ended up there as I wanted a walk that would be quiet and away from the crowds and also somewhere with a stretch of water so that I could have a swim if required on such a hot day. This walk fulfilled both of these requirements and this was a decent walk despite the weather closing in on the latter half.

I think we timed it to perfection for this wet walk up to Ullscarf, managing to miss the worst of the weather although we did encounter a particularly vicious hailstorm! All the becks were in spate due to the amount of water that has fallen from the skies and this area remained as boggy as usual. We even managed to see the sun today!

Ullscarf

Today’s walk is a round of Ullscarf – a remote and mainly pathless area which is mainly grassland. The weather was brighter than could have been expected with the sun making the odd appearance and no rain; cloud was prevalent above 500m.
