The walk started with a 20 minute bus trip from Fairholmes to Kings Tree as it was the weekend and access between these two points is restricted.
The distant views were hazy but despite the wind that accompanied us along the edges the day was spent in short sleeves with hats required in the afternoon as the cloud slowly began to disappear.
