Walked up catbells on a blue sky cloudless day. Can only describe it as a little bit of heaven. Stunning views. Should be made compulsory for anyone staying in Keswick

We did this walk over the Easter break...we're a family with two boys aged 12 and 9. We all loved it, the views are amazing and it's great to be able to just follow the path along without needing a map. We got the Keswick launch over to the start and had a few minutes difficulty finding the start but... More

Weather was perfect although a bit windy on the tops but such a fantastic view you forgot the wind. Keswick launch is the only way to get to and from Catbells

Views of the area, fun scramble! Unfortunately there were clouds at the summit so didn't get the high up views, just the views from the false summit.

Really spectial views. Even on a busy day it felt like a mountain adventure. Kids loved the scrambling. Nearby Swinside Inn good for a post-climb refreshment

By 10.30 am at Easter you can't keep count of the hundreds of walkers queuing to plod up up Catbells. But be on the fell by 8.30 am and it's completely different: you can find a parking spot with no bother and you have Catbells pretty much to yourself - and be down by 10.30 feeling pretty smug, and deservedly...

This is a great walk to do. However, be prepared to climb over rocks a little in a couple of times. We thoroughly enjoyed it though and would definitely recommend it. The views are stunning all the way up and that's what makes this walk so special.
