Looking into a Cumbrian Landscape

About Scout Scar by Jan Wiltshire
Book DescriptionWest of Kendal, there are escarpments and ridges with spectacular vistas of the Lake District Fells, the Kent Estuary and Morecambe Bay. Much more than a series of viewpoints, this is a limestone landscape worth looking into closely. Cunswick Scar and Scout Scar are sites of special scientific interest and of European importance for wildlife. The National Trust locations of Helsington Barrows and Brigsteer Park are habitats offering a rich diversity of birds, butterflies and flora. The Lyth Valley, between Scout Scar and Whitbarrow, is a different geology and a contrasting landscape. In the tradition of nature writing, "About Scout Scar" is a detailed portrait of a landscape. It is about the thrill of making discoveries through the seasons: of looking, listening, seeing. The theme of how we relate to the natural world is at the heart of it. Farming and conservation are integral, and underpinning this book are the voices of the custodians of this landscape.
