Pre lockdown a group of us got the bus from Kirkstone to Pooley Bridge and ran back - a good outing.
    That sounds great....

    But am i reading that correctly... 6 for a single fare Bowness to Ambleside!?!?

    The Kirkstone - Pooley Bridge bus is the one which i'll be using (my village is next one after Pooley Bridge)

    Yes - 6 - that is the cheapest ticket. But you can go a lot further for not much more.

    Looks like you're moving to the wrong mountains for bus travel, Travs: it's only 2 to Pen y Pass from as far away as Llanrwst.

    Presumably one would be purchasing a First Class ticket for 6, with complementary refreshments - luncheon perhaps?

    Thank you JohnK

    Although I'm traditional and have the 508 timetable printed out to stick to my fridge!

    Need to be careful with Lakes buses. I was once tempted on to the top deck of an open-top service on a cold bright day at this time of year. After doing 60mph along the A591 I couldn't feel my face for about half an hour after I got off.

    13.27 miles, 4,388 feet, 4 hours 21 minutes: Wansfell Ridge - St Raven's Edge - Red Screes - Roundhill Farm. Blue sky, the occasional cloud, a slight breeze on the tops, terrain dry and soft. Quite a lot on Wansfell Pike, very few on Red Screes, though the Kirkstone car park was almost full. Superb running conditions.

    10.53 miles, 3,073 feet, 3 hours 9 minutes: Loughrigg trails. The lovely calm dry sunny weather persists. Lots on the fell. My partner walked Red Screes - loved it - but wants me to remind her to take food next time.
