I persuaded my wife and daughters to do this "easy" 3 - 4 hour hike up to Catbells Summit. (Elevation gain of 1,400 feet). The views were fabulous, the different shades of green visible were stunning, and the purple heather on the hillsides made this my favourite day of our trip. Although young children, dogs, and seniors were on the... More

Amazing view from the top, looks over the Derwent waters. If you can do this - you are definitely in a good shape and health.

This was the first time we did this hike and was not sure what to expect. However, it was one of the best walks of my life. The views were just outstanding. Amazing postcard images at the top. The weather was good which helped. At rare times slightly difficult, but when you see little children and the elderly doing it... More

Good 4 mile walk all the way around. This is a busy spot. To me it's more then a walk and definitely more of a hike, it takes scrambling to get up the first mini summit. There was plenty of young kids doing the walk. Amazing views, worth going up! The trek down is harder then the way up!

We have done this walk before but not for many years. Set off early as the forecast wasn't so good but weren't put off as we have all the right walking gear and it was just as well as the cloud level came down and it rained on and off the whole walk. But who cares when you have scenery... More

This is a wonderful hike near Keswick. We were short on time and had a taxi take us directly to the trail head (a great time saver if you ask me). The hike was strenuous at times but completely worth it. A bit of scrambling near the top but excellent view of Keswick and the lakes. One of the highlights... More

One of the best views in the Lake District, over Derwentwater and down to Borrowdale. Not too strenuous a walk, but a good stretch of the legs all the same. Car parking space at the foot of the hill.

Lovely view all the way from the bottom to the summit, and not a difficult walk for any rookies like myself!
