Another great day walk with LDW Review by David
Overall Experience
A great walk, stunning views along the way, including the opportunity to look back and see the ridge we had just walked. Had a new guide, Tom, who was excellent. Met up with some walkers whom I had walked with before and also some new people. As ever it was a pleasure to spend the day with LDW. (Posted on 17/06/2018)
Lovely day's walk Review by claire
Overall Experience
Many thanks to Rachel for her efficient and friendly guiding. I really enjoyed this walk. Beautiful views all of the way round apart from Skiddaw summit, which was atmospherically shrouded in mist -- a really enjoyable contrast with the friendlier weather during other parts of the walk.
The only really hard-work portion was the trudge up to Skiddaw, slate-grey and fierce with wind. But even this felt well within my middle-aged abilities and the experience has given me lots of confidence, so much so that I'm hoping to do more of these guided walks in the near future.
I would certainly recommend this guided walk to anyone who has moderately good fitness or above and who wants a walk that is reasonably challenging but not intimidating. (Posted on 11/09/2017)
Highly recommended! Review by Bettina
Overall Experience
We had a really great time with our mini-group of three people crawling up Skiddaw and Ullock Pike in horrible rain. We actually didn't see anyone else all day which is apparently very unusual! I could never have done this hike on my own, so it was great to have someone guide us. Thanks! (Posted on 28/09/2016)
Fabulous walk with stunning views! Review by Christa
Overall Experience
The walk we did over Ullock Pike and then Skiddaw was very well planned and the views were outstanding. Clear skies made visibility perfect. Our guides Ross and Josh were extremely knowledgeable about the area and they had plenty of antidotes to keep us amused even when the going got tough!

My fears of not being able to keep up with the group were totally unfounded as Ross was careful to pace the walk so that we all felt comfortable. We had plenty of opportunities to rest, recover our breath and use the few minutes to take some beautiful photographs. Ross was even kind enough to lend me his pole to make my ascent of the final summit a breeze! I took his advice and bought a pair that very same day.

Great walk Review by Alison
Overall Experience
Had great time with John leading us on Saturday. Despite the atrocious weather we had a lot of fun and only the very strong winds prevented us reaching the top of Skiddaw. However we still managed to do three fells on the list. Thanks John for turning out to guide us on such a dreadful day. We will certainly be booking with you again. (Posted on 01/12/2015)
