Walk: Swainby Shooting House

This walk heads up onto the ridge of high ground that guards the entrance to isolated Scugdale, before heading into the heart of the moors above the sources of the River Rye, visiting the equally isolated Swainby Shooting House

Walk: Green Crag

Green Crag sits just back from Eskdale, and isn't really seen from the valley, but it it a satisfyingly craggy summit, with great views towards the upper reaches of the valley and the circle of mountains that run from Scafell to Crinkle Crags.

Barrow and Stile End

This short but quite steep walk up Barrow and Stile End takes us into the middle of the region of angular grassy fells north of the Newlands valley, an area dominated by the shapely Grisedale Pike and Causey Pike's distinctive profile.
