We followed the Allerdale Ramble route until we came to a fork in the path. At this point, we took the path up to the right and followed the slate section up to the summit of Castle Crag. Even though It's the smallest of the Wainwright's, It's certainly one of the nicest looking fells with good views from the summit. From the summit, we decided to take a look at the caves in the area. There are a few of them and one of the most prominent ones was Millican's Cave.
We then dropped down to Low How Wood and followed the River Derwent towards Grange. Our original plan was to catch the bus back to Seatoller from Grange, but we had an hour to wait. Instead, we decided to start walking back along the road, calling at Bowderstone on the way. When we reached Rosthwaite there was a bus due so we caught the bus from here back to Seatoller.
