Bowscale Tarn

The sun has finally made an appearance in the Lake District following what seems like eternal rain and wind.  This led many people to rush to the hills to enjoy the warmer and dry conditions.  Not to be left out, we had a half day stroll to Bowscale Tarn which was still quiet and tranquil.  Many Lakeland tarns have now become interesting to wild swimmers, an activity which has developed very rapidly in recent years.  We did dip a hand in the water and, despite the relatively warm air temperature, the water was bitterly cold – there was still snow clinging to the Northern headwall of the corrie.  We’d certainly want a wet suit to go in there!

If you’d like Steve’s support to explore the Lakes, up high, down low or somewhere in between, he’ll be pleased to help – though not necessarily keen to swim!  Get in touch on 07796 213817 and
