Nice walk up Carron Crag in Grisedale yesterday. A nice little rocky knoll poking out above the trees; a grand viewpoint, despite its modest height of 314m.


Black Coomb, Caw, Dow Crag, Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam, Helvellyn, Fairfield, Red Screes, Troutbeck Hills, Whernside, Ingleborough, Forest of Bowland, and a nice view south down the Leven Estuary. Lovely.

Well the rain finally stopped so I legged it out on to Dartmoor at lunch time and enjoyed Widgery cross, aka Brat tor Great links for me Sourton, before heading back to the Dartmoor in via Great Hidden.

Thinking around Buckden this weekend, loved it when I first did the pike.


Will have to be Sunday though, meant to be horrific rain till then.

Embleton, Northumberland along the beach to Dunstanburgh Castle and almost to Craster, and then back along the inland route. Blistering sunshine and a strong wind soon cleared away the cobwebs.

Shoosh man! That area is top secret. The best beach in the UK is Embleton beach. I love the bit further south of Craster, especially Cullernose point down past the rumbling kern through the sugar sands and along to the FBI in Boulmer. (Fishing Boat Inn), along another long sandy beach from Seaton point, past Foxton and arriving at Alnmouth.  Its muckle canny that yin.

Too little, too late, too bad......

My personal favourites? Beadnell closely followed by Druridge bay. Bamburgh would be in a class of its own  ;)

O0 There are a lot of great sandy beaches in Northumberland., truly a hard choice as to which is best but Seaton Point and Embleton are much quieter people wise.

Yes April you are absolutely right.
When you think deeply about it then anywhere else would be best.  ^-^ ^-^

I think you will find that the best UK beaches are in Scotland: Luskentyre, Mellon Udrigle, St Cyrus, Firemore are a few well worth walking.


Northumberland is safe.
