From Illgill Head. By the time I'd worked my way round Wast Water via Brackenclose, the rain had got heavier. So the steep pull up from the road just past Netherbeck Bridge felt even steeper! No views whatsoever. Onto Seatallan.James McKnight25/05/2019

Parked at bottom of Nether Beck under Middle Fell, walked up the half decent path all way to Pots of Ashness. Skirted this wet ground to NE and then the Joss Naylor trail to break off for my penultimate Synge, High Pikehow. For good measure re-bagged Haycock, Little Haycock then back past Pikehow to Seatallan on the JNT then Middle Fell. Descended direct through Iron Crag to path then car.nordicstar27/02/2019
So many years since last here had forgotten what a delightful medium (or should I say Middle) sized fell this is. Good paths, interesting terrain and superb views of Scafells and Wastwater Screes. Also very quiet given it is no where near as popular as its much larger neighbours. Up From Harrow Head via Buckbarrow, Seatallan and High Pikehow. A good grass path from High Pikehow that mainly contours around Winscale Hows. Back down to Harrow Head on main path as no time for visit to tarn before dark.Hillsidenick26/02/2019

With wife starting from Greendale. 1st on the fell this morning but by the time we reached the bifurcation of the path there were 8 cars at the start point. Lots of nice folk including old acquaintances and also a man flying a drone from the summit to Yewbarrow. That was an amazing experience to watch on his screen. Weather stunning. Not a breath of wind and we have suntans. % year old would love this walk.nukeboy126/01/2018
