Have just returned from picking Molly up from Swaledale and Hardraw after completing her Gold D of  E hike.
We set off yesterday morning and went up Great Shunner Fell - good views across the dales in all directions - remarkably chilly on top! The sun came out though as we came down to Thwaite - lots of lovely barns and walls. 
Heading for Hardraw we stopped off at the Buttertubs - where the limestone has been eroded
down to the sandstone beneath. Reputedly named because they were used as
refrigeration for locally produced butter.
We camped at the Green Dragon - well recommended for both its food and camp site...not to mention the waterfall. 
...and finally Rocky who enjoyed his first night camping and was remarkably
well behaved given it was his first night under canvas!
