Alpacaly Ever After Portinscale
#1 of 24 Sights & Landmarks in Keswick
Our guide Annie was so lovely, we learned so much about alpacas and had a fab walk around a beautiful estate and also Derwent Water - the views were amazing!
They were incredibly gentle and charismatic creatures who will sing to you! Terry walked us round the private grounds and gave us lots of info about the site and the alpacas.
Walla Crag
#2 of 24 Sights & Landmarks in Keswick
Out B&B is a 5 minute walk from the start of the climb to Walla Crag, it's quite a steep climb but well worth the effort for the stunning and breathtaking views from the summit.
A steady climb to the top of the crag and you are rewarded with glorious views, The return to Keswick can be via Ashiness Bridge and back along the shore of Derwentwater.
