And the house itself. It seems a shame that we can no longer find shelter by sitting next to the house; as I've done on many a winters day up here. But, and it's a big but, if I owned somewhere like this I'd like the option of letting people into the grounds or keeping people out as these people have done. In my opinion, just because we enjoy walking, doesn't mean we should have me the right to go anywhere we choose.
There's hardly any comparison as far as routes go, but this is the fourth time I've been to Skiddaw House this year.
