Northern island hopping

Cumbria is famous for its lakes and rugged mountains, which bring visitors flocking to the area.

Despite being a coastal county, its seaside is usually overshadowed by the Lake District.

The Furness Peninsula is dominated by the industrial town of Barrow, but also has unspoilt coasts and islands. 

This little expedition was a revelation. If you’re heading to the lakes, consider a little detour.
