Glencoyne Loop

Jonathan working his way up Glencoyne Brow

new Ullswater path
I've been exploring Glenridding and the surrounding area lately.  It's a beautiful area.  One of the, previously hidden gems I have found is the path along the wall along Watermillock Common.  It's mostly downhill, but at an easy gradient for the most part, with some runnable uphills.

After a bit of experimentation, I put together a great route, climbing up Glencoyne Brow, running along Watermillock Common and then down to Ullswater shore along the Aira Force track.  After the initial steep climb, it's all runnable, gentle (for the most part) downhill and single track or wider stone paths like the one in the picture on the left.

Overall it was just over five miles.  A very pleasant run on a sunny evening.
