Outgate bimble

Richard & Mary rented a cottage in Outgate so we joined them for a scenic bimble up Latterbarrow, near Hawkshead. This hill reaches the lofty heights of 803 feet but has wonderful 360 degree views of many major fells including the Coniston range, Scafell group, Langdale Pikes, Helvellyn, Fairfield Horseshoe and the Kentmere Horseshoe.

We did of course stop for tea and cake but the cake disappeared before I had time to photograph it.

A few difficulties en route did not deter the intrepid ramblers:
