Corney Fell Road > Great Paddy Crag > Kinmount Buck Barrow > Buck Barrow > Burn Moor > Whitfell > Corney Fell Road > Stoneside Hill > Corney Fell Road. Just me and H. Started off in thick clag and this continued for the entire walk accompanied by a strong breeze bringing a fine mizzle. Very wet underfoot with the decision to not wear gaiters being a poor one. Also forgot my sandwiches. Not the best day to be fair.johnkaysleftleg08/07/2022

7.3 mile circular from Buckbarrow Bridge. Followed beck then footpath up onto featureless Burn Moor, then followed trails across to Whitfell. From then headed back to col and onto rocky Buck Barrow then across to Kinmont Buck Barrow following fence to top of the pass and onto Stoneside Hill. Followed surprisingly busy Corney Fell road back to car. Great views in lovely sunny conditions and only saw 1 other person on the walk on a Sunday in the Lakes. Only 495m ascent on walk. Earlier that day we bagged Caw, Stickle Pike, Tarn Hill and Great Stickle.DanTrig27/06/2021

Another great day picking up Birketts on these hills of solitude!! The day started off misty, then cleared and we had an extended light rain shower in the afternoon as we walked from Whitfell to Plough Fell. Plus, we had the added bonus of spotting a meadow pipit clutch of eggs. A happy day of bagging indeed!!morgs4mountains12/05/2021
