Catbells Walk, English Lake District


Rob and I went on a walk up the mountain called Catbells, near Keswick in the Lake District yesterday.

A similar walk (Walk 17) can be found in the book below.


A view of Derwent Water as we start to climb.


Approaching the peak. Erk! Looks quite steep. There is a section of rock outcropping that you have to scramble over.


Views from the summit over the valley. I think the roses in the foreground must have been a memorial for someone.


Another view from the top, with Bassenthwaite on the top left and the end of Derwent Water to the right.


Coming back down to earth to walk along the base, next to the lake.


Here is a photo that I took of Catbells from Latrigg in January 2008. The ridge looks impossible to walk along at that distance! It is apparently named for the wildcats that used to live there in the past.
