Sheep on the fell side as we make our way towards the top of Binsey. Thats Bassenthwaite Lake in the distance.

Overwater and the Back O'Skiddaw Fells - the highest being Knott over to the right.

The mighty fell of Skiddaw to the south east.


No need for a rest there, the top is just here!


A few people up here this morning with wide open views all the way to Scotland.

The trig point on top of Binsey.

The Solway Firth and the Scottish Hills beyond.

Criffel in Scotland. 569m High and on my list of 'want to climb'.
