Highs Moss Tarn

I'm afraid Highs Moss Tarn is one of those 'lesser of two evils' places. At this time of year the tarn of somewhat overgrown with reeds, grasses and other summer stuff so there isn't much water on show. At other times of the year the tarn is actually quite big but, looks a lot less attractive and quite lifeless.
