It started off looking promising this morning but before I reached Burnmoor Tarn from Boot, the heavens opened and it stayed like that for the entire damp walk. Most of the photos were taken from within a hi-tech rain cover (thanks Tesco!) but even that succumbed to the soggy conditions in the end. I would like to redo this walk on a sunny day when I suspect the views will be quite spectacular towards the high fells.
