We walked from Kewick town centre, around the top of Derwent water and tackled Catbells from the north. It is a steep climb, but worth while. If you have time carry on along the ridge and up Bull Cragg, the next peak along. It really is worth it for the views. We were treated to a double rain bow, which framed the Derwent lake directly below us. What a magical day. You will need good walking boots or stout walking shoes, waterproofs/wind proofs as the terrain is rocky and the aspect is very open. If you are not used to lakeland walking the weather can change very rapidly so go prepared with layers of clothing. We experienced sunshine, rain, gale force winds, light winds, warm and near freezing and hail stones, all within a four hour period.
