As walks go up mountains in the Lake District this was relatively easy - so if you are just wanting to get to a peak it is perfect! There is a little bit of a scramble as you get toward the peak but the views are well worth it! Wasn't too busy, and went up above the snow line today... More

Fairly easy climb for most. Well worth it for the views along Derwent water. Parking not great, especially when side field not open and you have to park just off the road.

I have already reviewed Derwentwater elsewhere, but it is worth repeating that the views of the lake from the top of Catbells are simply astonishing. It also provides views of many other mountains and lakes as a reward for the short(ish) steep climb. Although we visited as part of a longer circular walk, there were many people simply climbing to... More

good easy-ish walk that has really rewarding views. Gets the heart working without being a grind and short enough to abandon if the weather sets in :-)

This place is brilliant. Love it. Something for all the ages. The place has its beauty and it's quirky local charms. I used to live up north growing up so the lakes always bring a lovely dose of nostalgia with my visits that I love. Would come with my partner, family and friends it's lovely.

Lovely, enjoyable walk that presents you with a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding area. Would highly recommend this walk if in the local area.

This small mountain is a fairly easy walk from Grange in Borrowdale and is popular with young and old. On the right day is affords great views, but even in poor weather it is a safe walk with clear path

Great walk. Beautiful. A must for any introduction to the lakes. Tough on the knees. Not for unfit individuals. However did watch a blind lady do this. Bring a snack for the top.

Always enjoy a hike up Catbells. There are so many different ways to enjoy this mountain at all times of the year either just going to the top and enjoying the view or part of a longer route. Take the launch from Keswick to Hawse End landing stage and head straight up the hill to find the start of the... More
