Walking the Langdale Pikes 19th August 2011

Walking the Langdale Pikes, 19th August 2011.

Enjoyed a walk on the Langdale Pikes on 19th August 2011. Having seen the hills from a distance on a previous visit to the Lake District, I'd always wanted to take a closer look. Excellent paths make for easy access and we enjoyed a nice round taking in High Raise and Sergeant Man. It was only the lack of midges that reminded me that I wasn't in Scotland!

Walking through the Lairig Ghru

A very enjoyable walk through the Lairig Ghru, from Linn of Dee to Coylumbridge on Saturday 30th July 2011. Camping the night before, we enjoyed an excellent display of shooting stars and satelites as the sky cleared and the milky way appeared. The morning mist soon burned off to leave a superb sunny day - almost too hot at times.

Cairngorm Club footbridge.

Wild mushrooms from Rothiemurchus.
