Indian Summer Stroll from SunBiggin

Proper hot today! I could hardly believe it, we walked nice and slow to soak up the amazing views to both the Howgills and Pennines. Only saw one person and he was on a horse. Other than the C2C path this is a very rarely walked/cycled area by the lack of prints.

As we climbed away from Sunbiggin Farm the Shap Fells dominate the West.

Once the broad ridge is reached the Pennines are arrayed before you, Cross Fell the high point of course.

Barely a breath of wind as we sat beside this ancient cairn had our lunch and soaked up the views.

A descent on a little used bridleway followed by easy ground across access land brought us to Sunbiggin Tarn. The Howgills and Wild Boar Fell beyond.
More bridleways and quiet lanes took us back to the car West of Sunbiggin Farm.
