Whitbarrow Scar

Checking back through my records I found it was almost 2 years since my last visit to Whitbarrow. Today's route was much the same as that walk, and from my pictures of the day the weather was much the same as well! I was surprised by the lack of both wildlife and birdlife....quite a lot of "Hairy Coo's" being grazed up there mind.
Here's a few pictures from the stroll......

Looking North from the highpoint towards the Kentmere Fells

From almost the same place, the view in a North Easterly direction across the Lyth Valley to Scout Scar and beyond

A Yew tree that's had a hard life at the hands of the wind. Low cloud over the Eastern Fells in the distance.

I spotted this erratic on the way back down...not Shap Granite as many erratic's looked more like Borrowdale Volcanic at a guess?
I was only out for a couple of hours but enjoyed the fresh air and views.


  1. You were lucky with the weather as usual. My 4 hours was in the rain again and a bit erratic.

    1. Oh dear not look at today's post then!
