A succesfull ascent of Scafell in the rain and a great BBQ in the evening sunshine

Our Scafell Pike Hiking Weekend in 2015 was from the 20th to 21st June.  We based ourselves in three fabulous Yurts in Great Langdale and headed up Englands highest mountain at the start of our Scafell Pike Hiking Weekend.  The rest of the weekend we filled with easier walking in and around Great Langdale itself and finished the walk on Saturday with a grand BBQ as the sun came out.

This is one review from the weekend:

Thanks so much everyone for a lovely weekend, and for celebrating my birthday with me! Thanks so much kevin & yen for being fabulous hosts!! The yurts were awesome – we did try to claim squatters rights on the last one, unsuccessfully of course!

The weekend didnt get off to the best of starts as we headed up Mickleden and Rossett Ghyll in drizzly rain and cloud.

And sadly the weather didn’t clear as we got higher up and we reached Esk Hause.

The summit was shrouded in cloud, but then began to clear on the return journey.

And then the sun even came out for our final descent into Mickleden

Which led to the most lovely evening for our grand BBQ.
