[weather] Sunny with very little breeze making it quite hot for walking. - Artlecrag Pike now has two prominent cairns although I only seem to remember one from my last visit a few years ago? The higher of the two is the original I think. The actual summit of Branstree is marked by an ordnance stone circle and a small cairn. As would be expected for such a flat top views are limited especially towards the rest of Lakeland by the High Street range and Harter Fell.
