15 Short Walks in the Lake District: Keswick, Borrowdale & Buttermere

£ 9.95

A great new pocket-sized book of short walks around Keswick, Borrowdale and Buttermere written by Vivienne Crow.

Vivienne Crow has chosen 15 of the best short walks around Keswick, Borrowdale and Buttermere. Each walk comes with easy-to-read Ordnance Survey maps, clear route description and lots of images, plus information on beauty spots and refreshment stops. No challenging terrain or complicated navigation means the walks can be enjoyed by everyone.

The wals take you to see Borrowdale’s ancient woods; the lakes of Derwentwater, Crummock Water and Buttermere; Castlerigg Stone Circle; traditional Lakeland pubs; cosy cafes; isolated hamlets; fell-top viewpoints, including Cat Bells and Castle Crag; picturesque bridges, including Ashness Bridge; low ridges; lake cruises; birds of prey and other wildlife and summit of Skiddaw, England’s fourth highest mountain.

The valley and lake routes are suitable for nearly all abilities; however, a moderate degree of fitness as well as waterproofs and more robust footwear are recommended for higher walks. Basic navigation skills are valuable for the higher routes and in poor weather. In particular, the inexperienced should avoid Skiddaw in poor weather.
