we also made the mistake of doing this route anti clockwise, if you park at bogle cragg car park turn out of the car park and follow the purple signs, we followed the purple signs up from the car park which meant we did the routs in ani clock wise and it has some very steep climbs at the start and my son klepy having to walk plus we lost the purple markers but somehow met up wiv them after a while. they arent clearly visible the markers so keep a close look out for them. enjoyed the ice cream at the visitors centre........didnt see any sculptures ...maybe theyu have gone now.
