[sigh] I forgot to apply the "SimonF is barred from this little quiz" caveat :-)

Yes indeed, it's the gate at the top of Charred Pony (Burnt Horse) and that is very definitely Lonscale Fell cairn you can see. If you look to the left and a bit lower you can also see the summit of Lonscale Pike, I thought that might give the game away.

Sad to say that the Borrowdale Banksy is no longer there, we couldn't even spot where it had actually been - someone has cleaned up very carefully. The irony is that we lured a friend up there (it's a steep climb) with the promise of the BB, only to find it gone. Oh well.

p.s. we saw this colourful guy on the climb up Burnt Horse. I understand it to be a common Peacock butterfly, I can't say I've seen one before though.

The background view was a good clue, had aa rough idea, but don’t know that spot - tried and failed to cheat using OS aerial view :)

Sorry NE. As way of apology, here's a picture of the stone circle on Burnt Horse on a "beautiful" day last January. You'd probably have been able to see Skiddaw through it on a good day :).

Ah, she's not much more than a pup really.
