There has been snow all around the UK for the last week or so, with some areas getting more than others. Last weekend I headed up to Ambleside for some winter walking.

Looking down the struggle

After leaving the car in Ambleside we walked up the side of Stock Ghyll and onto the struggle by Kirkstone Pass. Here we dropped our bags at the pub, had a quick pint and went to play in the snow on the surrounding hills.


We spent the evening by the fire in the pub and headed to the hills again the following morning. Calling at the Kirkstone on route.

The Kirkstone from which the pass derives its name

Up the Red Scree slopes, which weren’t very red and onto the summit. Then returning along the ridge back down into Ambleside to collect the car and head home for a well earnt cup of tea and slice of cake.
