Orrest Head

Start point: Windermere (SD 414 987)

Orrest Head (OF) from Windermere

Distance: 1 mile     Total Ascent: 120 metres    Time Taken: 30 minutes

Weather: Snowing. 1°C

The snow was heavy and constant for our walk up to Orrest Head this morning and this meant that all views from this renowned viewpoint were obliterated. I find that walking through snow clad trees on snowy paths has its own merits though, and coupled with the muffled and muted sounds it still makes it a different but nevertheless enjoyable experience.
