This site is well worth a visit. It`s a "good" walk from Keswick town centre & uphill. The standing stones are really thought provoking & the views are fantastic.

Always have to take a trip to the stone circle everytime I am in the area! Truly awesome bit of history along with great views and peace if you can catch it on a quiet day!

Planned a trip to here as a short walk and it's so worth it. On a nice day it's right up there with any location you could imagine. Please do visit. Our ancient ancestors had immaculate taste.

Yes you can. There is a very easy route from Keswick. The footpath map is available from the Tourist Information office.

Hi and the walk from Keswick to Castlerigg is up quite a steep hill so it may be more relaxing for you to take public transport or your own car to the monument. It is possible to park on the side of the road quite close to... More
