POINT:
You can leave from the same Coniston, from where the bus leaves you. I forgot to activate wikiloc later.

HOW TO GET:
With the train you can get from the line that connects Glasgow with London to Oxenholme. There you have to change to the train that goes to Windermere and from Windermere take bus 505 to Coniston. In summer at least they are frequent, but sometimes they are not synchronized with the train.

WHY TO DO IT:
Old man of Coniston is one of the most famous peaks in this area of ​​the lakes. Once up there is a panoramic view of all the valleys and lakes on all sides of the peak. You even get to see the sea.

DIFFICULTY: discounting ascent and length, the road is mostly easy, with moderate stretches. In some section, I am a little clumsy, help me from the hands to the descent. For the first part until the Old man of Coniston I saw many families with children and also not very fit people doing it, so that shows that it is affordable.

EXTENSIONS:
There are many alternative roads to the Old Man, if you have time you can extend everything you want. From the old man you see peaks to the left and to the right that you can do around the town.

SERVICES:
In Coniston there are several hostels, bed and breakfast, hotels, places to have breakfast and dinner, pubs. There is also a co-op supermarket. It also has, at least, the bus connection to Ambleside and Windermere. Even so it is a small place.
