Castle Carrock to Tindale Tarn and Back

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

Castle Carrock to Tindale Tarn takes in beautiful scenery, local history and an RSPB site. The local history includes massive kilns that were used for lime and coal. You will also take in disused quarries along the way, one of them, which was quite large, is now a nesting area and part of the large RSPB site which you will walk through.

You will walk a short length of a disused railway line that was used in the area and was also used by Stephenson's Rocket!

Apart from the initial climb, the walk is easy and on footpaths easily seen to the eye. The walk starts at a small but free car park at Jockey Shield, Castle Carrock.

This is a lovely walk and the instructions are really easy to follow. Just a note that parking at Jockey Shields is limited so we got there early to ensure our space. It was busy today even though it is Wednesday. There is also parking at Geltsdale RSPB reserve and at Tindale village and this walk can easily start and finish at either of those places too,

Due to carelessness on my part, I walked this in reverse(!) but still found instructions easy to follow. Of the three stiles, two can be avoided by using adjacent gates. A good walk for bird watchers and those interested in our industrial heritage.
