This is actually a lay-by found just down the road from the main Muncaster Castle car park. On the occasions I've parked here it has been for no other reason than it's closeness to Muncaster Fell.


Route Map

It was a lovely evening to be out, so I headed to Muncaster for a walk up to Holker Crag or Muncaster Fell as I've always know it.

One of the many Rhododendrons passed along the way.

Stainton Pike and Whitfell seen across one of the log stacks I passed on the walk up Fell Lane.

A tranquil scene at Muncaster Tarn.


Practising the art of camouflage, but not not having much success with those faces!

Muncaster Fell summit, with a view into the Eskdale area of the Lake District.

And looking around to Yoadcastle, Stainton Pike, Whitfell and Black Comb in the distance.

While I was heading back down from the fell I got a much better view of the area where the trees had been felled recently.

The one that got away.

Years to grow and moments to chop down.

Foxgloves - a sure sign that the Summer season has arrived.
