Great Paddy Crag - Buck Barrow - Whit Fell - Burn Moor - Kinmont BB. From the Fell Road as in Wainwrights Outlying Fells with a diversion to Great Paddy Crag. Solo walk and no one seen. Very wet and slippery underfoot on a windy day with varying visability.Dave25/10/2017

Agree with Wainwright-boring! Deserved the smallest cairn I've ever seen.Peak Rambler15/08/2017
WOs 35-43; Bs 26-38. Cloudless skies so did a huge day with 9 WOs and 12 Bs. Parked at summit of Fell Road then quickly up and back Stoneside Hill. Excellent walk over Great Paddy Crag, Buckbarrow, out and back to Kinmont Buckbarrow and same to Plough Fell (dull). On over Burn Moor to Whitfell - best views of whole trip - and pitched camp under Stainton Pike. Joyce set up camp while I did Stainton Pike, then horrid boggy walk out to The Knott and much better back to White Pike, Woodend Heights and Yoadcastle. Walked back to Fell Road next morning in thick mist.BURGESS24/07/2017

AW's route from the fell troad summit: Great Paddy Crag, Buck Barrow and its subsidiary tops, Whifell, Burn Moor and Kinmont Buck Barrow. A cracking good walk.Nick Down105/05/2017
From minor road summit, a round of Stoneside Hill, Buck Barrow, Great Paddy Crag, Kinmont Buck Barrow, Burn Moor, Whitfell and Plough Fell.rhalstead15/04/2017
Late afternoon sun and mist swirling round the Barrows reminded me of 19th century paintings of Dartmoor. Jogged over to the western cairn, good sea view then direct to Kinmont Buck Barrow.Wycombe Wanderer09/01/2017
After Whitfell, great views despite high cloud. Could see Antrim, the Mournes, IOM, Galloway and N.Wales.bolton02/12/2016

Continuation of walk from Kinmont Buck Barrow. Descended north down to the wall, over it, then on a path up to the summit plateau. Walk continued to Whitfell. Solo.marktrengove13/10/2016
Done with Richard T & Adrain W as part of a circuit taking in Buck Barrow, Whit Fell, Burn Moor and Kinmont Buck Barrow and a diversion to see the Rowantree Force.falunty05/08/2016
Start ~ 134904, Buckbarrow Beck. Followed the track up on to the moor passing over the summit of Burn Moor to get to Whitfell. The summit cairn was inhabited by a wasps nest so decided to have lunch later. Followed a contouring path over to Littlecell Bottom and then up to Buck Barrow. We included Kinmont Buck Barrow before dropping directly back down to the Beck following a strange burbing wall which seemed to have a underground stream in its base. With Wombourne & Lynnette.steve hudson22/07/2016
Set of from the farm junction on the Corney Fell road following the Bridleway to Bigert Mire. Bridleway. Yeah right? After 100 ft there is nothing. I was actually heading for Whitfell, but through desperation for lack of path headed up the mound that is Burn Moor to instant regret, deep bog holes everywhere, watching every footfall. Lot's of recent (Storm Desmond) scarring present. Amorphous sumit and had to walk 400 metres to find the 'cairn'. I'll be honest I was ill-prepared and not yet fit enough for this and I felt it. I took a few hundred deep breaths and then headed for the target whitfellnukeboy120/07/2016
From Fell Road out to Buck Barrow, then on to Whitfell returning over Burn Moor and then on to Kinmont Buckbarrow (wrongly be taking left side of wall and having to go past it to find gap).SS29/05/2016

Pleasant circuit of these fells from the pass. Buck Barrow, Gt Paddy Crag, Kinmont, Burn Moor, Wansfell and back over Plough Fell to road start. Paths about 50% of way, otherwise short grass and furze. Surprisingly dry but a chill Easterly wind.nordicstar22/03/2015
