Nice afternoon out with friends. The weather turned out way better than expected and we were treated to a stunning panorama of the coast, surrounding fells and countryside. Unfortunately, we could not see the Isle of Man properly though, as it was partially obscured by clouds. All in all. A great walk. 11/10. Would walk again.DAB8114/04/2018
