Some fine walks amongst superb scenery!
From coast to hill country, under the shadows of the high peaks
This 62 mile walk takes you on a west to east route from coastal Ravenglass to Brougham Hall, near Penrith, with between 7 and 13 miles walked daily.
We'll walk towards remote Wastwater, the most atmospheric of all the lakes, through spectacular scenery over Black Sail Pass and then under the shadow of the high peaks - Great Gable, Scafell Pike, Pillar and Haystacks being amongst them.
Continuing east there's another stunning high level route to the gentler scenery of the Newlands Valley and the shores of Derwent Water, before arriving at Keswick. From here we gently ascend to the Castlerigg stone circle, with far reaching views back to Derwent Water and Bassenthwaite Lake. We then pick up a lonely coach road through thousands of acres of high moorland to walk down into Dockray and Ullswater. Journey's end is at Eamont Bridge (rather than continuing for another day to the official end at Appleby), before returning to Hassness Country House for a farewell dinner.
