Glaramara & Grains Gill (19km)

Nice weather for a change on thursday accompanied this visit to the Southern Fells. I started off from the NT car park in Seatoller after a night spent at the Honister Hause YHA which really does only deserve the 2 star rating. Walked over Stands Bridge before climbing up to Bessyboot (Rosthwaite Fell) and heading for Glaramara.
