After a Saturday spent taking Jack round old Trafford for doing well at School and Lily an Myla to the IWM we deserved a day in the lake. Setting off at 6am with Myla in tow we headed to Ambleside. Unable to park at my normal spot at the church near the unicorn we parked at the main carpark and walked through town. At the salutation took the small Stockghyll lane at towards the waterfalls of Stockghyll force. Amazing place. From there went through the turn gate and onto Wansfell. Steepish slog to the top of Wansfell Pike and hit with breath-taking views of Windermere, Ambleside and the central fells. From there we followed the crest of the ridge for 1 mile to get to the true wainwright summit of Baystones Seeing Red Screes and the far eastern fells in all their glory. Route down we just retraced our steps through the now crowds on the popular view point of Wansfell Pike. Myla had a well-earned Ice cream on the way back through Ambleside before we headed home for an unplanned sesh in tScotty 2 Hotty25/03/2018
