Buttermere (Cup Marked Stone) by GLADMAN Hard to imagine a much more glorious landscape setting for rock art, I guess. Looking from Striddle Crag, Fleetwith Pike, across an unfeasibly hot and hazy Buttermere.

Had no idea about this, we must have passed fairly close by on our walk around Buttermere. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

You're definitely just below Striddle Crag, in the lovely side valley of Warnscale.
Buttermere is a valley to enjoy on a clear summers evening, a place to sit out and watch the fells turn purple after the sun drops below the horizon, and the stars appear one by one. A place to wake up in in the early hours, and to look outside as a pale moon rides high above the lofty ridges.
