A Grasmoor Horsehoe

It's September 2020 and after a year full of lockdowns, cancelled holidays and just general chaos, I rather unexpectedly found myself having a week of carefree fell-walking in the Lake District.

Day one was spent near Borrowdale, the second in the wonderful Newlands. For the third, I had a lovely horseshoe walk around the highest fell in the North Western area - Grasmoor.

Walked on 21 September 2020.

Route: Buttermere → Whiteside → Hopegill Head → Grasmoor → Wandope → Whiteless Pike → Rannerdale Knotts → Buttermere.

N.b. I had visited Hopegill Head a year earlier, so it doesn't get its own page in this section.

Whiteside

It’s steep, and rather foreboding. And you may well get overtaken by a dog on the way up. But Whiteside is a cracking fell non-the-less.

The highest of the North Western Fells.

Wandope. Really not the most exciting fell in the world.
