As promised Red pike an unpleasant looking red scree field (don't remember it so bad). Carried on to Starling Dodd and Great Borne, as weather still good, and saves climbing them from Ennerdale. Bearing to come off along fence line off for some reason and ended up having to back track from a track going off to the west. Long walk out to Buttermere along a slippery stoned and bracken lined path. Diversion at Scale bridge as reconstruction work in progress. Missed last bus back at 17.18 hrs, so enjoyed a lake trout dinner and as advised by bar tender walked along the road to CP-nearly as pleasant as the lake route, but quicker, and cheaper than a £25 plus taxi fare.
