Revisited this idyllic place two weeks ago, having last been there around 46 years ago, and it didnt disappoint, despite it being bathed in sunshine all those years ago and very dreary this time! It is one of those places that would look fantastic whatever...More
Beautiful tarn with amazing view over to Great Langdale. Easy access from the car park. Slightly hairy drive from Great Langdale - single track and some steep inclines in parts (there are passing places though). Nice walk round tarn and up to the road to...More

Not the best tarn in the...More
