Bath Skyline

SPOILER ALERT: there are no scones on Bath Skyline. This is because Bath Skyline is a 6 mile walk along some footpaths, with stunning views of Bath along the way. If you want to eat scones in a National Trust property in Bath, you need to go to Bath Assembly Rooms, where I also went today.

HOWEVER. I cannot be 100% certain that there are no scones on Bath Skyline. I cannot be 100% certain that there are 6 miles of footpath, nor that there are stunning views of Bath along the way. For all I know, there could be a Madame Sconeington-Sconesbury's Superstore of Scones on the Bath Skyline. I don't know because I couldn't actually FIND Bath Skyline.

I'm not blaming anyone but myself and the scone sidekick for this. The woman in the tourist office gave us a map and warned us that the bit of Bath Skyline nearest the town isn't very well signposted. I am absolutely hopeless with a map anyway. And we were short of time - today we walked along, argued twice about where we were, and then gave up. Usually we make this last at least an hour.

So here's a picture I borrowed from the National Trust website, showing a view from Bath Skyline. I think you will agree that it's lovely. One day, I will return and I WILL FIND IT.

Bath Skyline: 0 out of 5, as I couldn't find it (due to my own shortcomings, I add)
Scones: 0 out of 5, as there weren't any
