Hay Stacks

Today was our 100th family walk in the Lake District.  And it was an epic!  Hay Stacks stands 597 metres (1958 feet) in height.  But starting at Honister gives you an advantage as that is 332 metres (1089 feet).  This also makes it a Wainwright fell, to tick off the list! It is 2.2 miles there.  We did an out and back so 4.4 miles in total.

Sour Milk Gill, Buttermere

Starting from the pay and display car park, walk round the Fish Hotel onto the path towards the lakes. Follow the path and when you get a fork, take the left path which will lead you to the lake. With the lake in front of you, turn right which will then lead you to the base of the Sour Milk Gill falls.
