On Ullswater - A Week in Cumbria - Day 4.

Lakes in High Stand Woods, Cumbria

After an early morning walk around High Stand Woods, and despite the weather not being very promising, we set off for a canoe paddle around Ullswater.

We set off from the National Trust car park at Glencoyne Bridge (NY387188) and paddled across to Silver Bay.

Then south to Blowick Bay, where we had some lunch.

The weather was deteriorating, so we called in for a hot drink at Glenridding pier,
