Starting at Scales we walked around to Scales tarn before climbing upi to Blencathra. From Blencathra we headed north to Foule Crag before descending to the col and climbed east to Bannerdale Crags. After descending into Bannerdale we had a superb burger and a pint at the Mill Inn. After letting the burger go down we headed back to Scales by following the River Gleneramackin to the small plataeu above Mousthwaite Comb. Originally we had planned to take a route along Souther Fell on the return but the burgers put paid to that idea!
