/ Recommendations for long weekend
Lakes or Peak, Long weekend in June. Circular route or linear with option to get back to start on public transport. Just me and my tent, some scrambling along the way would be good. Any suggestions would be really welcome, off the beaten track with some solitude preferred. Thanks in advance.
Derwent watershed in the Peaks but lacks scrambling. Lots of solitude though and circular. About 42 miles in total so good for a couple of days.
Not quite what you asked for but what about the howgill fells? Should be options for solitude thetr
Did this one 2 weeks ago.
Drive to Silecroft. Get train Silecroft-Ravenglas. Get another train (steam if you plan it) Ravenglas - Eskdale.
Couple of pints in Boot , walk eastwards towards Harter Fell, then southwards to Whitfell and follow the ridge all the way back to Black Combe and the car , we wild camped around the half way mark. 9 miles ish both days ... saw some scrambling opportunities and had plenty of solitude even on a bank holiday weekend.
Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.
Plan a route to walk west to east across the whole Lakes, following a grid line with no more deviation that 1km either side of the grid line. It is possible, but only on one grid line, and takes you through some amazing places where few other walkers go.
