Today we met up with my brother and his family who are camping in the Lake District, and then four of us did a 6km walk taking in Cat Bells (1479ft, 451m). And very nice it was too.
Cat Bells from the boat across to Hawse End.
Bassenthwaite Lake, Skiddaw and Derwent Water.
The summit of Cat Bells looms large, whilst behind it on the right are Maiden Moor, Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson.
Looking back along Skelgill Bank.
Derwent Water and Keswick with Blencathra dominating in the centre. To the right are Walla Crag and Clough Head.
Maiden Moor from the summit, with Castle Crag in the middle distance on the left.
Looking SSW from the summit to Maiden Moor, Dale Head, Hindscarth, Robinson and Red Pike.
Looking SW-W from the summit. Red Pike, Starling Dodd, Whiteless Pike, Wandope, Crag Hill, Sail and Scar Crags, Causey Pike and Grisedale Pike.
