With Jon Glew from Longdale, good circuit, via Middleton trig, long valley walk back to Longdalenordicstar17/12/2018
9.2 mile circular from near Fairmile Gate, walked north along road and followed trail near Carlingill Beck, forded a few streams then climbed steeply up Uldale Heads slopes using a mixture of sheep trails and ancient tracks to col, headed west to bag Blease Fell and unlisted Hare Shaw (23m Prominence) with its cairn, then descended back to col and climbed up onto Uldale Head, descended very steeply to Blakethwaite Bottom, up onto Hand Lake and then Docker Knott, then an easy ascent onto Fell Head (2nd time bagged), descended via Whins End, forded stream then back across to car park. Very hot and sunny exhausting day, we shortened the walk for this reason. Easy Howgill terrain underfoot throughout mainly on ATV trails.DanTrig05/08/2018

Overnight camping route on Northern Howgills from Gaisgill. Took road to Cotegill and then track and open fell to Langdale Knott.

Descended N along ridge then traverse to Waskew Head and return to Gaisgill. Wet and cloudy day 1, bright on day 2.RobertP04/02/2018

Round of Fell Head, Docker Knott, Hand Lake and then back along the Fell Head traverse to Linghaw from Fairmile Gate. Good ground.Eddie20/10/2015
Parked at cattle grid at Fairmile Gate but there's what appears to be a purpose made parking area a little further north. Linghaw, Fell Head, Simon's Seat, Docker Knott, Hand Lake, Uldale Head, Blease Fell. A lot of up and down and not really a logical walk, but bagged 6 new tops and revisited a mountain so satisfying from a box ticking perspective.ijpowell21/08/2015
