Sunday in Ambleside dawned grey and mizzly. The lads went off to the Kendal Climbing Wall, but Dad and I persevered with our plans to walk along Scout Scar.
Accessed from the National Trust car park, Scout Scar is just to the south of the Lake District National Park, but still within the county of Cumbria. The Scar is part of a limestone ring which runs around the edge of Morecambe Bay and was once at the bottom of a warm, shallow sea (though, were you to want a swim, you would have to travel back in time 350 million years!).
The ridge stretches above the Lyth Valley at a height of 235 metres, running roughly north to south for a couple of miles.
The walking is easy and the views are said to be stunning!
