Just a quick thanks to Justin for posting the link to the blog.
It's great to be able to keep up with what's going on on-site. :D

...and Malise, in the absence of any of the Western O crew, I must concur with you in your admiration for all things Eskdale.

I've walked up Hardknott many times and would say that it's much less scary than driving up there, although it is lung-busting. La'al Ratty is a joy. I love the smell of choo choo trains in the morning :D

Hi Sue,

I agree, the bath house is excellent and well worth a visit. The walk from there right into Eskdale, over Muncaster Fell is also fantastic (if a little swampy).

For such an (apparently) out of the way place, Eskdale has a lot to see, including the wonderful Devoke Water and Barnscar, which is the remains of an iron age village.

Someone has posted a mini trip report and some pics here: http://quantise.blogs.com/ilove/2012/01/devoke-water.html
