The third guidebook in the Short Walks in Lakeland trilogy, the series also covers walking routes in the South Lake District (Book 1) and North Lake District (Book 2).

50 short walks are described, generally between 4 and 9 miles, enough to pleasantly fill a good half-day, and ideal for day visitors or family walkers. Some longer walks could be split, others combined. It is not a high fell walking guide, although several popular summits are included. Priority is given to the lower fells and dales, which are as rewarding as their higher brethren. The combination of detailed description and clear, easy-to-follow maps and evocative sketches makes this book ideal for anyone who wants to explore West Lakeland. 

This guidebook divides the West Lake District into five regions:

  • Duddon Valley and the coast
  • Eskdale
  • Wasdale
  • Ennerdale and the coast
  • Lorton Vale, Buttermere and the north-west


  • Seasons
    Year round, but be prepared under winter conditions for things to be much tougher.
  • Centres
    Access to the West Lakes is through either Keswick in the north or through the South Lakes (or through Wrynose and Hardknott passes).
  • Difficulty
    Half- to full-day walks, mainly in lower fells and valleys, plus worthwhile summits. Easier routes than the high fells.
  • Must See
    Wild Wasdale, remote Ennerdale, high ridges around Buttermere, plus less-known and quieter walks down to the coast near St Bees and Ravenglass.
