Ravenglass → Silecroft

[Scafell topped by snow]

Distance: 16.0 miles
Ascent: 392 metres
Duration: 5 hours 20 minutes

On the horizon
« Sellafield | Millom »

Had there not been workmen on the Eskmeals Railway Viaduct I might have dashed along it. Had the River Esk been lower I might have crossed at the ford. I'm glad I didn't. Had I not walked along the wood-fringed riverside path I would have missed this view of Scafell. On Monday I talked of snow-topped mountains; today I present the evidence.

[The Isle of Man from Eskmeals]

During the second half of the walk my attention was fixed on the horizon in the opposite direction. Rising out of the sea forty miles away, the Isle of Man was clearly visible.
