At the moment, I’m walking my way through Wainwright’s Outlying Fells. Yesterday morning, two of us headed out towards High Furness to tackle the Woodland Fell walk – which also takes in Beacon Tarn. The views were stunning; although, at one point, we got a little lost looking for “a prominent depression” and an “ancient cairn” (which was impossible to spot from the adjacent fell)! Fortunately we found both eventually.

This morning we decided to approach the same range of hills, but from Coniston side this time, to complete Wainwright’s ‘Beacon Fell’ walk.
