    Christine Shepherd walked up Whinfell Beacon on February 23rd, 2018 [from/via/route] Walked from Huck's Bridge using walk c136 [with] On my own [weather] Bright and clear - A lovely walk with great views of the Howgills and Borrowdale. A great place to have lunch. The onward path was very clear but I decided to retrace my steps back over the fells. There was a notice at Huck's Bridge saying that stepping stones had replaced the bridge near the A6. I wasn't sure how easy the stepping stones over the beck would be if they were iced over. Will return to walk Borrowdale Beck on a warmer day.

    Mark Davidson climbed Whinfell Beacon on September 24th, 2004 [with] Theresa [weather] Dry, warm and sunny. Really very nice. - Nice walk well away from the crowds

    Elaine Grayson bagged Whinfell Beacon on September 6th, 2015 [with] Friday Ramblers [weather] good but windy
