Buzzard Scar, Swaledale, Coast to Coast
The view from Buzzard's Scar, whichever way you are facing, is certainly memorable and unlike scenes from anywhere else on the Coast to Coast footpath. The scars on both sides of the Swinner Gill are equally precipitous and the path quite narrow in many places. One needs a head for heights to traverse this section.
Swaledale - from Buzzard Scar
The path did present some difficulty in places and it took us about an hour to reach the end of the Swinner Gill Valley, where we descended to the Gill over a footbridge that led to a rocky path alongside (and sometimes within) East Grain, as it fell in cascades from the hills above.
