West 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.
