Uldale is a secluded area behind Skiddaw, and what it lacks in drama in makes up for in the isolated nature of the terrain.

We parked near Peter House Farm and joined the Cumbria Way for a short distance. After leaving the main path we climbed, in order of appearance, Great Cockup, Meal Fell, Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell and Knott

There were lots of ups and downs but the gradients were fairly gentle.

The weather was rather hazy and overcast, so the long distance views were not seen at their best, but at least the rain held off, and we all enjoyed the walk
