There are fabulous walks from Low Jock Scar and in the local area. No need to use the car, just put on your hiking boots and you have a choice of walking routes straight from the door.
Our favourite walk is through the Bannisdale valley where you cross a Dry Howe bridge over Bannisdale Beck which runs through Low Jock Scar. I took this photo on a lovely winter walk.
For those who like a Wainwight, there are a few in the area, including Grey Crag, Tarn Crag, Bannisdale Horseshoe and Borrowdale and Bretherdale.
