Description
Waypoints (0)

This route is on grass with only one trackless section from Brae Fell to the crossing at Charleton Gill. The best wind shelter is on Meal Fell. This neglected part of lakeland is called the Uldale Fells. The adjacent road is single track with passing places. There is ample parking at Longlands. For the record there are three 'Cockups' ( incl. Great and Little) and two Sca Fells ( also Great and Little). The valley of Trusmadoor must be unique in lakeland on account of its narrowness and shortness.

very steep in places, got to work hard to get to the top of the first three! dont give up tho, its an amazing walk round. ended up doing 8.1 miles as no path from brae to longlands and is very boggy (end of November) mist was there all day so no views but had cloud inversion at top of great cockup. a hard wark (still a beginner on 12 wainwrights) but overall enjoyable. gets the heart beating fast!!

Great walk. Clouds and fog came in so views not so great, but it's November and it stayed dry. Brae Fell to Longlands Fell, no clear path and you have to cross the stream, but not too difficult to navigate using the app. Rest of the walk is straight forward. Would like to do this again on a clear day

Beautiful walk. Easy grass slopes, well defined paths between summits. We experienced low cloud cover on Great Sca Fell, so was grateful for compass!!

A very easy stroll. Proper grassy Fell walk across five of the Wainwright’s Longlands, Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell, Meal Fell and Great Cockup. Felt more like a walk in the Peak District than the Lake District. Can get very windy. Stick to the tracks.
