Today’s quest was to get Dougal out on the fells for a bit longer, not do a walk that was too tough and begin to get his stamina up a little. The walk to Walla Crag from Surprise View offered this plus plenty of different options depending on how we got on. I had intended going up onto High Seat but it seemed further than I remembered so I decided to drop down to Derwent Water and walk along the shore for a change.
