Scafell Pike Solstice Sunrise
Where better to see the sunrise than from the highest point in England? Definitely something to be on your bucket list. Starting from Wasdale Head we walk up the tourist route to the summit in the dark before waiting for the sun to come up over the Cumbrian mountains and the whole of England beneath your feet – its making me inspired just typing about it. The great thing about this walk is if you have never been up before then the whole view will be revealed to you for the first time in jaw dropping splendour as, of course, you never saw any of it on the way up and will have waited around in the pitch dark until the first rays creep across the landscape.Just a little caveat; the view is pretty much weather dependant and whilst I’m good I can’t control the clouds … yet! If you like the idea of this walk then perhaps also check out our Snowdon Sunset and Ingleborough Sunset walks.
