Thanks so much for such a positive review. It was a great day and summitting Ingleborough under a full rainbow was memorable! Steve and I both remarked on the determination and good humour of the group. Hope the aches and pains were worth it!

We hired Ian as a walking guide in and around the town of Grasmere . He was very knowledgeable regarding the flor, fauna and history of the area. We had a great day of hiking and exploring with our group of 7.
