The wind chill must be a bit tasty wherever you go this year.

On a Hogmanay holiday on the Isle of Arran, a couple of days ago when sober and able to walk fairly straight, an ascent of Goatfell to work up a thirst for the upcoming celebrations, a beautiful day, quite rare for this time of year in these parts. Did this walk about two and a half years ago, but bit to [censored] by midges, no problem this time.

Hopefully not offended Dick Large

I love Arran, went up Goat Fell about 40 years ago. We had a sit down about half way up and enjoyed a thermos of coffe. I felt something move by my ankle and was a bit put out to see an adder slithering away, was very glad I hadn't sat on it!

Where's the Scarf?

I thought I knew the Lake District fairly well, but I don't know this one.

Is that from the back way Alan?

Been up twice before but both times from Wasdale Head way and up the narrow path up the gully.

I suppose it's good to get up there before the summer queues!

From Seathwaite Wukkie round the back of Great End up to the Pike then down Corridor Route to Styhead.

Shots from Friday after new year.

I choose Seathwaite as it's the Easiest way to get there from Carlisle as Wasdale is a pain to get to and the busiest route.

Given choice it would be doing it from Whahouse Eskdale a stunning route by either Little Narrowcove or Cam Spout Crag (allow a full day)

I once took my wife up the Hardknott Pass on my birthday. She said that's not going to happen again any time soon.

Probably the worst half term week for weather I've experienced in Cumbria for the 25-30 years I've been coming up.
Usually there's a good day here and there in a bad spell but with the wind, rain, hail, sleet, wind, rain, hail and sleet it was tough going out and about.
Such strong winds made it hard to get anywhere near the tops and paths, tracks and fields were sodden.
Still, managed to get out and about in the valleys in the Northern Lakes - Southerndale, Wythop, Dash and Barkbethdale - and onto the lower slopes and foothills of Skiddaw, Sale, Brae Fell, Dodd and Longlands.
Probably didn't get above 500 or 600 ft but still great to be out and about getting blown around with Rooks, Buzzards and Fieldfares for company.
Coming in sodden, frozen and windswept makes you appreciate the woodburner and Loweswater Gold all the more.
Despite the weather an hour or two on the hills can still make you feel like the luckiest man alive.

"Was up Arthur's Seat on tuesday gone".

Is that a West Cumbrian euphemism?

I`m pleased I managed a few hillwalks in the brief weather windows between the turn of the year and the recent lockdown, looks like the hills will be out of bounds for some time, unless you`re fortunate enough to live in the Lake District and have a hill at the bottom of the garden.

Anyway a few photos.

Always a pleasure to visit Helvellyn.
