Yesterday we took the bus out to Fairholmes and from there went around the two reservoirs, from the one called Upper Derwent reservoir to Howden reservoir and back.
Weather did not appear to be promising because it had been forecasted to rain a lot, but there are good clothes these days :) so there were no excuses not to go out.
Said and done, in the morning it started drizzling, but it was so little that we could walk without the rain jackets.
This route is 15km long, but it is very easily walked because you follow a road on one side and there is basically no hills either. It might not sound so fun but at least there was not many cars driving past us.
It's pretty nice to walk along the reservoirs, you get to go along the water and in the forest and then on the other side see the peaks 500m.a.s. Unfortunately they were a bit gray o dull right now.
On the other side back you follow a little wider path, this round is also very popular with mountain bikers as it also can be extended so that it also passes Ladybower reservoir and then its the 24km and many seem to think that just enough (lagom).
The rain never came and we got up to see the sun for couple of hours. The last hour before the bus was spent on that shoot small birds in Fair Holmes but more on that another day.
