The walks are likely to be mountainous with most walks going above 800m in rough terrain

This should be a great weekend in a pretty special campsite, surrounded by famous mountains, in which to spend the long Easter weekend!  🐰🐥🏕

Depending on who attends we will have various options for walks over the weekend, both on the Saturday and Sunday. These could include: Haystacks, Buttermere, Great Gable, Pillar, Steeple, to name just a few famous names!

The campsite isn't open to the public but is a Scout Association campsite, so it will be "back to basics" with getting to make our own camp fires for the evening, but it still has some luxurys like showers! :) 

One great walk would be to pay homage to Alfred Wainwright – whose ashes were scattered over the waters of Innominate Tarn on the summit of his beloved Haystacks, some 250 metres above you. At just under 600 metres in height, it’s one of the Lake District’s more modest mountains and the final haul up to the summit requires a bit of scrambling, but the views from the summit are truly breathtaking.

There is one small pub which is around 1.5miles away, so in terms of food & drink I'd possibly advise people to bring their own for evenings/breakfast etc.  It isn't a very touristy area so there aren't really any pubs/shops on the walks so stock up on treats and supplies!
