Thanks Tracey. Tess visited the grooming parlour yesterday whilst I was working, and looks like a different dog!

Some years ago I walked from Haverthwaite Station in a 13 mile loop to Newby Bridge and that route took in Bigland Tarn and the tarn at Back Reddings allotment.  The allotments were quite hard going as I recall.
I alsi did a shorter version from Haverthwaite to Newby Bridge again taking in both tarns a reduced distance of 6 miles.

I didn't have too much trouble - the path in was reasonable, and there is a well trodden path along the shore. I did have to cross some dead bracken to pick up the path climbing away from the tarn - this obviously was not much bother in winter, but could be tiresome in July!
