This is the best introduction you could get to fell walking in the Lake District. Any route, any time of the year and you'll quickly realise why people fall in love with this place.

Recommend this to everyone! Such beautiful view and worth the walk. Take a picnic and relax at the top... The lakes look beautiful, such a rewarding and relaxing experience :-)

Park in Portinscale. Walk along lakeside path past Marinas then follow Catbells ascent. It's a steepish steady climb but the views are tremendous. One bit of hands-on climbing. We came down a different route by going beyond the summit, descending and turning sharp left to go down towards the lake. Nice round route.

Lovely walk with absolutely breathtaking views when you reach the top, Can get a boat over to the walk from Derwent water which runs pretty frequently. Very dog friendly, saw lots of dogs walking.

This is the classic fell if you're visiting Keswick .... Catch the launch to Hawes End and then follow the well worn path up the fell ... Be prepared for a stiff climb at the start but be rewarded by superb views over Derwentwater to Keswick, down into Newlands Valley, and across to Skiddaw and Blencathra ......

If you can get on the Derwent Water launch (ferry) and take in the views as you cross the lake. The fel is steep in places but the route is easy and most people should be able to get to the tp in an hour or so and if you are lucky with the weather the views are fantastic. Good... More

In1983 we stayed in the Newlands Valley, I had never been to the area before and we arrived after dark so I had no clue about it, next day we went up Catbells from the opposite side to the lake, when the view appeared I was dumbstruck with the sheer beauty. Been back many times since and always enjoy the... More

Catbells is well worth a climb. Be aware that the ascent from Nichol End involves 2 small scrambles. Nothing nasty, but if you were expecting a stroll to the top then you're in for a surprise. Superb views to be had so do it on a clear day.
