Hallin Fell - Lake District Walk

Tuesday 4th April 2017

Today's walk was combined with a trip on the Ullswater Steamer. After yesterdays longer than planned walk the gentle ascent of Hallin Fell was ideal, especially as out of the breeze it was warm enough to just sit and soak in the views from the summit.
