Kirkstone Pass, near Ambleside, Lake District

Kirkstone Pass, near Ambleside, Lake District

Photo of Kirkstone Pass. The wild and splendid scenery of Kirkstone is beautiful in the sunlight, and strange and mysterious in the gloom. Its a lovely drive over the pass from Ambleside to Hartsop and Ullswater, but I prefer the other direction, where the wide valley of Windermere stretches out before you.
