|panorama of Malham Tarn|
We parked at a car park at the top of Malham Tarn, which was nice and quiet - pretty good considering the crowds that were out on a bank holiday weekend.

The walk around the top of Malham Tarn is well worth doing. You walk through woodland with a couple of buildings on the water edge including a bird hide, boat house and the big outdoor centre. It is very different to the "other" Malham, the village and Cove.

This got bigger and bigger until we found ourselves coming down the very centre of Gordale Scar. The size of the Scar cannot fail to impress!

We followed the path out of the Scar, crossing the campsite and stopping for an ice cream an a near-perfect setting.
In my next post I will share the journey and pictures that took us past Janet's Foss and onto the Pennine Way to take us back up through Malham.
