I am visiting the Lake District for 2 days and was after some local expertise. I will be staying at the Armathwaite and was looking for some ideas of viewpoints in the area. I'll have the afternoon spare and want a nice spot to have a romantic picnic and take in the spectacular views.
I've been reading up on Skiddaw but wondered how long it takes to get to the top from the car park at the top of Galeo Road - is this the best starting point for a quick assent? Is there a better viewpoint in the area? Any suggestions are welcome.
As always, your input is much appreciated - cant wait for my trip!
