Stunning walk taking in beautiful views. Take your time walking to the summit, some sections are steep and require a bit of a scrabble over loose stones. The walk can get a little busy at times but it is very enjoyable.

Great day out. With a bit of scrambling involved. Beautiful at this time of year as the heather is in full bloom.

I had read about the hike to Cat Bells Peak prior to our trip and decided that I would take half a day to go up. I was not sorry I did! The hike up was somewhat tiring but I just paced myself. Anyway, it was good to pause occasionally and look back at the views of Derwentwater and Keswick.... More

Catbells....not the biggest, not the most spectacular but still a really enjoyable walk. Get to the top then carry on along the ridge to High Spy....be silly not to.

Catbells has to be one of the most photographed hills / mountains in the lake district. The round walk is great with spectacular views from the top of keswick, derwent water and the borrow dale valley. We set out from where we were staying, (Stair Mill in Stair) which meant we did not have to use the car. There is... More

Catbells presents an attractive profile from Keswick which demands further investigation. A walk to the top is ideal way to do this. It's not the highest of fells but it gives a great view of Derwent Water, and a 360 degree panorama. Well worth a climb!

Our 11-year-old grandson, together with my husband and eldest daughter, did this walk and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Keswick's own mini Matterhorn :) Recommend taking the launch from Keswick across Derwent water. Stunning views of the hill you are about to climb. Great for children (care needed at the top though) or people new to hill walking. Although dwarfed by some of the surrounding fells, you still gain a sense of achievement and despite its size, some outstanding... More

My wife and I recently walked up Catbells on our recent holiday. It was amazing my only advice is to make sure you take plenty of water with you on hot days as it was a bit of a challenge in the heat. The views defiantly made it worth while
