Ambleside to Brotherswater and back.

Aim is to walk from Ambleside to the Brotherswater Hotel in the morning, and back again by a different route in
the afternoon.

Designed so that those who have hangovers from the night before can miss the morning and join us at lunchtime in the pub for the
afternoon half!

Choice of route will depend on the weather.

If it's good we will go over Red Screes and return via Caudale Moor, Scandale or Kirkstone depending on preferences.

If it's wet, we'll sneak over Scandale and return via Kirkstone so as to take in a second pub.

There's various options for dropping off a car and doing only half or 3/4 of this walk, so if you are interested in a shorter option, please let me know and I'll try to arrange for cars to be left in suitable places.

Grade is moderate but this is quite a long walk for the time of year.

I expect we will finish this walk in the dark.

Therefore PLEASE BRING A TORCH IF YOU WILL JOIN FOR THE AFTERNOON SECTION - I may have one or two I
can lend but we won't be setting off in the afternoon with anyone who doesn't have one on them.

Max distance for the whole walk: 20km, 13m.

Morning half over Red Screes
would be 10km and 650m, afternoon half over Caudale Moor 10km and 550m, with a reduction of 2-300m ascent if we return by one of the passes.

Meet outside Gaynor sports in Ambleside (the top entrance) at 9am, grid ref 377047

or in the Brotherswater hotel at 1.30pm, grid ref 403119.

See you soon
