Caudale Moor, High Street and Kidsty Pike

3 days into the holiday a no proper walk for me so far, yes i’d had a couple of little walks to Latrigg and Aira Force but the hot weather had held me back. Tuesday looked good, the temperature said it would drop a few degrees but the sun would still be out. It was…

Derwent Water, Latrigg and Ullswater

Start of another week in this fabulous part of the world and the weather for the week was probably the best and hottest I’ve ever had up there in the 10 years I’ve been going. It was high twenties most days, even up on the tops on the two days I walked high it was…

Latrigg, Derwent Water and blue skies

Our last day and the weather turns, what a day. Blue skies everywhere. We packed up in Keswick and headed off to Latrigg to catch the inversion and sunshine. The views were as good as I’ve ever had up in Lakeland. With good weather comes lots of people and the Gale road car park was…

It was Wednesday morning and we decided on another walk. This made it 4 walks in 4 days for me, which was nice! We only wanted a short walk as we had visitors to meet at lunchtime, however we had done all the obvious ones around Keswick. We decided on a longer drive but a…

A circuit of Buttermere

Time for another low level walk from my week in The Lakes and this one is a classic. I’ve been and done this one once before, on a glorious crisp February day (here). Today wasn’t quite like that but the quality of the views and surrounding fells make it a joy. We’d saved the walk…

High Raise, Loadpot Hill and the Roman road

The roman road over High Street is famous around the country for traversing the 828 metre peak of the same name. It connected the two roman forts of Broughton (near Penrith) to Galava (near Ambleside) and took its route due to the marshy and wooded valleys on the normal route, which were prone to ambush.…
