This is actually a lay-by found just down the road from the main Muncaster Castle car park. On the occasions I've parked here it has been for no other reason than it's closeness to Muncaster Fell.

Route Map


Here are just a few picture from a short walk onto Muncaster Fell this afternoon. It was quite warm and although I briefly had the sunshine when I set off, the long distance views weren't on offer today. You'll see why shortly.

I guess I'm too late for the bluebells this year. They weren't really out before we went on holiday and now they're past their best.The grasses & bracken have also overtaken things.

Muncaster Tarn.

Muncaster Fell comes into view.

The walk may have been nice but the views simply weren't there today. Far too much haze I'm afraid.





Heading back down now. A very short walk but still nice to get out.
