All good tours of the Blencathra range should start with a fell that has a rather ghostly tale to tell.

Surely the highlight of any tour of the Blencathra range is this one; a fell that Wainwright counted as one of his favourites.

Don’t go there, says Wainright. But we must because you put it in your book, says the fell bagger.

Bannerdale Crags

With some nice crags, and a truly excellent cairn, can there be a finer place to visit than Bannerdale Crags?

A rather non-descript fell completes the Blencathra group, although a delightful tarn allows for some celebration.
