Sunday 4 June 2017 – Dave’s Big Birthday (Part 4 – Scout Scar)

After last night’s revelry, the turn out for the final instalment of Dave’s birthday celebrations was understandably small, especially given the 8.30 am start.

This spot, just a five minute drive from the centre of Kendal, is clearly one of Dave’s favourite places. There are great views over Kendal and the Lyth Valley.

Sue and I managed to park in the wrong place. but we soon joined Dave, Emma and William at the Mushroom viewpoint.

It was cloudy and atmospheric, much more attractive in Dave’s view than a ‘blue sky’ day. This is how he likes it. The views are great.

After admiring those views we returned the way we’d come – just a few hundred metres back to the car park, glancing back to the Mushroom as we went.

A great way to start the day. Thanks for planning this, Dave.

Longer routes are available from the car park at SD 488 924.
