From Moffat you continue south over the border into England and head to the historic Cumbrian market town of Penrith. Here you will have the chance to get lunch and explore the ruins of Penrith Castle, which played a key role in defending the border from invading Scots. After lunch you travel into the Lake District National Park, along the northern shores of Ullswater described as England’s most beautiful lake where you can take a forest walk to see the mighty Aira Force waterfall. You then travel towards Keswick, stopping outside of the town to visit the mysterious Castlerigg standing stones, thought to have been built over 5,000 years ago and the scene of ancient rituals.

May you kindly clarify what you will consider medium size luggage please? I have a 28" luggage bag, do you consider it a medium size suit case?

Your kind advise please.

Thank you.
