Great 6 mile loop walk from Keswick. Suitable footware should be worn, the climb is int too strenuous but certainly worth the views from the top.

Less than a mile hike. Relatively steep, sometimes quite steep; ok in non-rainy weather but be careful if wet. Take your time, views ever expanding on way up. Windy at top. 3 ways up- one from parking is steeper, rock and rock steps; two more...More

Beautiful mountain, 45 minute walk from Keswick through woodland. Started snowing at the bottom, by the first summit we were in a blizzard...then the clouds cleared away to lovely sunshine. Fantastic views from the top

Not for families or bad weather! we found it tough and we're trail runners... We saw two frozen children up there, who wanted to go down asap.

Whist the walk to the top of Catbells is very rewarding don't mis the opportunity to come back along the edge of Derwent Water. It is a lovely walk and a real contrast to the challenge of Catbells.
