Ambleside, Stock Ghyll and Scandale Beck

This walk might well be called The Two Valleys Walk as it takes in at least part of the two main dales that drop into Ambleside. It first goes north-east along Stockghyll and then cuts across a shoulder to enter Scandale and accompany the beck north to High Sweden Bridge. At its highest the walk just touches 300m or 1000', but it is nowhere exposed and is a good bet for a day of bad weather when the higher fells are less hospitable. Having said that, High Sweden Bridge is a delightful spot to while away an hour in the summer, while the views along Windermere on the descent are fantastic.
