If you are in Bowness with limited time and you want to understand what the Lake District is all about this short walk is perfect. It starts up a road then heads across open countryside for 15 minutes or so. Walking boots of some sort...More

A lovely walk with fantastic views of the lake. Can be steep at times. Kids loved it. Plenty of space to rest at the top to enjoy the views.

changeable weather means if you hang around for 10 minutes you may get a good view of the lake and hills giving ou the perfect photo opportunity well worth the hike up
