Whitbarrow Scar

I'd managed to con my mate Bill out for a short walk on Whitbarrow
Scar. This is looking North from the North end of the scar. I'm still recovering
from a cold, todays brisk walk in the bitter East wind certainly blew
 the cobwebs away!

Once we entered Flodder Allotment we found some shelter and sat in the
sun behind the wall to eat our butties.

As you approach Lords Seat there are a number of areas of limestone
 pavement. The stunted Yews and Juniper have a hard time of it up here.
No prizes for guessing from which way the prevailing winds come!

The impressive cairn on the highpoint, this is a cracking viewpoint,
all the Southern and many of the Eastern/Far Eastern fells on view.
For those who like to bag a peak or two this is a Wainwright
Outlier and a Marilyn I think.

We made our way back to the car along the maze of paths through
Township Plantation, to Row before dropping down to the car at the
 Lyth Valley Hotel.


  1. Sounds like a nice wee dander!

  2. Yep, lots of options...different starting points, a myriad of paths and excellent views. Handy for me as well, makes a change from Farleton and Arnside Knotts which are my local hills
