Lovely walk yesterday and quiet as we didn't meet many other walkers. It was very icy and slippy in areas so be careful. Don't forget your camera!!

We have climbed Catbells on a number occasions and never tire of this relatively easy fell climb when coming up from the east side. It is a bit of a scramble in places when coming up the north side although this is the way more people seem to choose. Parking can be a bit of a problem but using the... More

We went in Autumn half term, and there were a lot of people (and gorgeous dogs) climbing, but understandably so, it's a beautiful view of Derwent Water and the countryside around, and it's not so awful being in a crowd when you're all there to enjoy the same thing. There are several of peaks as you go so there's are... More

The scenery is amazing and it is the sort of walk which can be undertaken by anyone of moderate fitness. It is really good value for the effort. Not only can you see the lake but also Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Blencathra. On... More

Great walk up Cat Bells. Bit of a scramble at the summit. As in most of the Lake District the signposting leaves a LOT to be desired! So take an ordnance survey. Not a lot of car parking at the bottom.

As Wainwright says, "it must be something like this in heaven"! Maiden Moor, High Spy, Dale Head ... Unbeatable.

We went to the top of Catbells which certainly got the heart pumping but the view from the top was worth it. There are a number of different ways down so careful where you park!
