Poorly signposted from the Ulverston end covering the first day. In fact the path is poorly signposted for most of the way. Mind you it's enough to keep many walkers away. Which may be the reason. There are a couple of good camping grounds and...More

My mum and I did this as part of a longer walk in the Langdales and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The views are fabulous particularly on a warm, clear sunny day. Certainly worth a visit.

Brilliant walking and climbing.....but once you leave the Lake District it is a bit boring.....my advice stop at Keswick walk around the lake 8 miles.....bus takes you straight to Carlisle.
