Travel to Cumbria and Beyond

Eagle to Ullscarf

Eagle to Ullscarf


Cumbria’s circular shape

hides its inner core

from anyone wanting just an easy stroll,

on an empathetic slope.

 

 

The ice moulded central mass dominates the rocky west of England in a  greater way than its, in truth, small mountain height should.

Eagle Crag, a big chunk of black rock at the end of the Borrowdale valley, pushes, face forward, daring you to approach.  Guarding the centre from the faint hearted.

It’s  a bit of a pull up a rather steep slope.

The privileged view of the Langstrath Valley and Borrowdale

All the hard work will be over within the first sharp 1km up. 

Now you’re free to wander the hills at will.  With very little effort.

On one of those radiating spokes from the wheel of Cumbria there are a multitude of possibilities available.  Further rocks to climb up and fells to wander and wonder over.

From any of the spokes you can walk to the core.  End up in Langdale or further west in Wasdale or even the remote and secluded Ennerdale.

Ullscarf

Places brought close together by walking.  Distances which take on miles more to circumnavigate by road.

Just take care to take the correct spoke down.

There will be a very long bus ride if you get it wrong.
