If there’s a better simpler low level walk in the UK than this one then feel free to let me know. A few miles, a bit of woodland, cascading streams, a large lake, a tunnel and a cracking village with a couple of pubs and a couple of coffee shops. It is a fabulous place to walk, the fact that the views are absolutely jaw dropping just adds to the brilliance of the place. I’ll be doing this one again for sure.

I have a feeling there will be quite a few shots of Fleetwith Pike at the end of Buttermere today!!
Snow topped Grasmoor ( I was up there back in Oct 2015) and Mellbreak on the left. The Loweswater fells in the distance
Through Burtness Wood
Around the large and horned cattle on the pathway!!
Looking from Peggy’s Bridge along Buttermere
The robin takes off in front of Fleetwith Pike
Around the other side now looking to High Stile
The classic view of the Buttermere Pines backed by a silhouetted Haystacks
About time for another shot of Fleetwith Pike!
High Stile and Red Pike across Buttermere, after exiting the tunnel
