This walk was actually just a bit of leg stretch for me at the start of a long drive home after 4 days of strenuous walks on some of the nearby big fells and camping further up Borrowdale.

The start is in the National Trust pay car park & the route is signed.

Note : the kink upwards on my return leg was to the edge of a quarry so beware.

The Bowder Stone itself - its a bit of a scramble to move round on the top itself

The view across to Goat Crag on Low Scawdel hiding High Spy which I'd passed over the previous day

As it's my 1st post I thought I'd do a easy one, so I hope you like it.
