our party of 12, including 2 eleven year olds, braved the high winds and low cloud as we set off up the tourist route from the car park just north of Latrigg. The wind blew away my 2 1/2" map near the top! The replacement doesn't have the annoying purple lines that obscure the paths and walls...it's an ill wind...The views on the way down (to Millbeck) as the cloud lifted were outstanding. Thanks to the person from the parish church who let us shelter from the rain. The path down would benefit from the National Trust/Park path improving programme.
