Part of the Walking the Lake District Fells series, this guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 30 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from Keswick, Whinlatter, Bassenthwaite, Caldbeck, Mungrisdale and Threlkeld, with highlights including Skiddaw and Blencathra. Includes suggestions for longer ridge routes.

Seasons

Year-round walking. Winter walks, even on the lower fells, are not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.

Centres

Keswick, Braithwaite, Lorton, Bassenthwaite, Hesket Newmarket, Mungrisdale, Scales, Threlkeld

Difficulty

Straightforward ascents on sometimes clear, sometimes faint paths, and occasionally pathless terrain, to be used as a basis for readers' own walks. Navigational skills are needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling alternatives are always provided.

Must See

A fresh perspective on classic summits in the Lakes including Skiddaw, Blencathra, Knott, Great Calva, Dodd and Lord's Seat, and an inspiring introduction to lesser-known Lakeland fells such as Bowscale Fell and Lonscale Fell; superlative ridge walking including the Skiddaw Skyline round
