Wild Camping weekend
14th & 15th June 2014
Above Borrowdale, Lake District

A weekend of warm, still weather, with a brief but heavy shower on Saturday evening. Misty on Sunday as we headed across Allen Crags, but cleared as we dropped into Langstrath Valley.

Our route: Rosthwaite, Stonethwaite, Big Stanger Gill, Tarn at Leaves, Rosthwaite Cam, Glaramara, High House Tarn, Allen Crags, Eskdale Hause, Angle Tarn, Angletarn Gill, Langstrath Valley...


Wild Camping: In England and Wales, all land is privately owned and landowner permission is required to camp on private land. Wild camping is permitted on certain areas of common land on Dartmoor, and it is also permitted in Scotland as long as you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. In reality, wild camping high amongst the mountains is a tolerated tradition as long as it is undertaken responsibly. So, obtain permission if possible; camp high amongst the mountains away from paths and popular areas; arrive late, leave early; leave no trace; no fires; take ALL rubbish out with you; small group sizes; respect and protect the environment.
