A superb, but long walk from the base of Hardknott pass, along the Esk and Lingcove beck; up to three tarns over Bowfell; down Yeastyrigg gill and back along Lingcove beck and the Esk. Lovely waterfalls and pools. The river was quite full after recent rains and paths at times damp. Splendid views from the tops. Rather hot, so the swim in Lingcove beck was ...shall we say 'rather fresh'!
