Its been quite a while since I've been out in the hills with Ian. Today our days off coincided, so a plan was made and the Howgill's were selected for today's walk. It's always difficult to find somewhere neither of us have walked previously. But having met at mine and studied the map over a brew we decided to walk south into the Howgill's from Gaisgill.
A good path took us past Gill Hole and Intake, the view opening up before us as we gained height easily. The path then descended to a sheepfold where we had lunch, carrying on following the beck we reached the ridge at Archer Hill. The OS map shows a pool just below this minor top and true enough there it was, rather larger than the map shows I would say.
