9th May 03 - Orrest Head and Robin Lane (again!) 

OK, so we have done it before. But it is my favorite walk anyway. Taxi to the start at Windermere Station then the climb to Orrest Head (where Wainwright first fell in love with the Lake District). Then fantastic 8-miler through Troutbeck (for a cup of tea at the Post Office) and along Robin Lane with its views of Windermere and the crags and fells beyond. 
Then a stroll through the NT Stagshaw Gardens to Waterhead Pier to catch Swan to take us back to Bowness.
