Climbed Loughrigg with my son and my 7 year old grandson over the Easter break. It was very warm , 23 degrees so there were a lot of people with the same idea. Once on top the view, as everywhere in the Lakes is fantastic.

Nice walk on a hot day, not too strenuous but a good distance if you continue to Skelwith and good exercise.

Absolutely amazing walk yesterday from Ambleside over to Grasmere. Was a little worried that our kids (7yrs and 9yrs) would struggle but they absolutely loved it. Took us about 3 1/2 hours including a quick picnic. Recommend parking at the rugby club (honesty box) and...More

We landed on a good day and what views you gain here. Bit of a motorway of a track up which makes it nice and easy. Some steep early on and late on the hill. Lovely picnic spots along the way. Views from the top...More

Family of 6 ‘townies’ walked from Ambleside up and over the fell. Teenagers loved the walk. Day was sunny and the scenery was breath taking. Arduous in places but good fun. Views over Grasmere at the top were outstanding, best part of our holiday this...More

I was going to walk the Fairfield but was advised not to because of the weather so did Loughrigg instead and I am glad I did. I was staying in Ambleside so did not need to use my car to get to the start which...More

Had a short break in Ambleside and as the weather was good we decided to go up this not too high hill. We went up from Foxgyhll house. It was a steady pull but well worth it as the views from the top were spectacular....More

This is an easy walk to the top of the fell. Start at Ambleside and continue over the top of the fell into Rydle and walk back along the river.

All the car parks! Best route is through the park and up the fell, we did this route, see link. Look at Walklakes website for a relatively easy route up to summit, 3hours, 6 miles?

I think it would be difficult to get lost around Rydal Water and Grasmere. Park at White Moss Car Park or one of the other public car parks on the A591 and then follow the footpaths around the lake. I'm sure the kids would... More

Hello, sorry I've not come back sooner, as regards the 79 year old, I would say not suitable, to be honest there are no easy routes and it's quite a steep climb. Best not to put yourself in any danger.
