Recommended route :-

Start Main Square  Broughton in Furness ( you can get Petrol in the village )
Take the A595 to Duddon Bridge, Cross & then turn immediate right - over the Corney  Fell Road.
Rejoin the A595 & Call in at Ravenglass for look around the Ratty Railway & new museum.
Carry on again up the A595 to Holmrook - turn right to Eskdale green .
Follow the signs to Boot &  Eskdale
Over Hardknot  pass - stop at the Roman Fort for a look round & stunning views.
Through Cockley beck - and over Wrynose pass  & follow signs to Skelwith Bridge  A593.
Turn in the direction of Coniston ( Call in at the church to see Donald Campbell's  resting place )   , then Torver - & back to Broughton all on the A593.
Pop into the Manor arms for drink , and contemplate the ride -  write it on  postcard   - and send it home to yourself  :002:
All excellent and interesting roads - take it slow and enjoy the views , plenty of stops for photos . You don't need to be mileage bagger to enjoy this most special part of the lakes.


The Tiger is also made for these roads - even if the weather does not play ball , it can only add to the riding experience & drama !

Thanks, I'll give it a go!

Me and two friends, all on Triumphs, me on my Tiger, stayed three nights in the central Ambleside Brathay Lodge Hotel http://www.brathay-lodge.net/ which is less than "a stones throw" from everything Ambleside has to offer.

Great value, large car park, large 3 person room and a great breakfast.

Recommended.
