We crossed the fields and joined the old drove road that went round the back of Low Fell and zig-zagged up to the top. View down towards Crummock Water from the start of the drove road.
Close-up view out from the final ascent to the summit.
Whiteside and Grasmoor on the left. Looking over Rannerdale Knotts to Fleetwith Pike then Haystacks with Green Gable and Great Gable behind. Then the Red Pike range and close-up right is Mellbreak.
Although this is the summit the best view point is further on. 400m past the posing sheep.
A better view of the valley below.
It`s so peaceful I`m falling asleep!
Then from one more cairn further down.
Whiteside and Grasmoor.
A walk from a few weeks back.....THe slopes of Mellbreak, Hen Comb and Gavel Fell with Great Borne behind.
Burnbank Fell and Holme Wood above Loweswater.
Looking over to Darling Fell and then out to sea.
Ling Fell, Graystones and Broom Fell, looking over Swinside to Skiddaw.
Looking over the slopes of Fellbarrow and across the Solway Firth to the Scottish Mountains.
Looking back across Smithy Fell and Sourfoot Fell to Low Fell.
We were watched all the way!
View across the Solway Firth, becoming more hazy in the north.
Returning to the drove road.
The village of Thackthwaite. The sign ahead said " Red squirrels drive slowly" ......Bloody squirrels, they get alloy wheels and baseball caps and think they`re boy racers!
