Walking the Wainwrights - Ling Fell and Sale Fell

These are the two most north-western fells in the Lake District, and they make a great little afternoon walk.  Well the two together are a bit more than that, since they are quite separate, so there's quite a bit of up and down.

Here are the pictures (you can click on any picture to get a larger version).

The top of Ling Fell, looking over Scotland in the distance.
Looking south towards the Hopegill Head ridge and Grisedale Pike, with some of Whinlatter Forest just visible.

That's Sale Fell across the valley.

And this is Ling Fell when you cross the valley and start climbing Sale Fell.

Skiddaw just across the valley from Sale Fell.  This time, the valley is just a bit less easy to negotiate, having a large lake at the bottom.
The top of Sale Fell is not unlike a golf course fairway.  Delightful to wander around on....

Descending the northern side of Sale Fell, Bassenthwaite Lake comes into view and, beyond it, little orphan Binsey.
The gorse is still flourishing...
