Walking in Seatoller


The southern end of the Borrowdale valley is split by a series of off-shoots and looks like a hand on the end of an arm. The middle finger of this complex of corries and ridges is the mini massive of Glaramara and Allen Crags. Set somewhat apart from the main bulk of the central fells it shares all the same qualities as it's neighbours but has its own unique feel and outlook.

A walk over these two peaks allows you to sample the softer delights of Borrowdale with its mixture of woodland, becks and crags whilst at the same time experience the drama of all the great peaks that ring Upper Eskdale and of Great Gable from an elevated position. You will encounter narrow paths and the odd bit of rock that might force you to take your hands out of your pockets but essentially this is an out and out fell walk.
