The Glaisdale Round (11 Miles)

Bank holiday monday was reserved for a walk, it had to be something worth walking but something that wasn’t too long as we didn’t have all day.

We chose to do the Glaisdale round as we love the area around Glaisdale and hadn’t been there for a while, we also knew there was a cracking pub at the end of the walk which always helps.

The walk can be found here courtesy of so i won’t go into turn by turn detail.

The walk it’s self is nice and simple and a nice easy walk  the main problem being that most of it is along roads or tracks, which one a bank holiday were full of 4×4’s, who weren’t the most careful in the world, however the views along the walk are absolutely stunning, especially when you get to the top of the rigg and you have 360 degree views of the surrounding valleys.

We ended up in the pub where i had a couple of pints of nice ale (moorhouses’s broomstick bitter and copper dragon best bitter) along with a steak and ale pie followed by creme brulee, it was all gourgeous, infact i say this every time we go there it is one of my favourite steak pies.

You can see all of my pics on flickr but here are a couple of my faves:
