Not a bad walk, but it was spoiled by the low cloud so I didn’t get to see any of the, what must be, spectacular views.

There’s no scrambling but there is a small amount of scree on the route. The paths are generally good. It wasn’t busy because of the weather, but I would imagine it can get so on a weekend. It didn’t feel too strenuous given the fact Skiddaw is over 3000 feet.

So, overall, I’d say I’ll have to do this again when it’s a clear day!
