Phil and Molly's Lake District HOMEPAGE

40. Circular Walk from Keswick via Latrigg Viewpoint

English Lake District, Cumbria

(ex Cumberland/Westmorland)

 Lake District & North-West Index

 

From Latrigg you get magnificent views of northern Lakeland in all directions.

You can do a circular walk starting from the old Keswick railway station and walking along the disused trackbed, now a footpath, eastwards before turning north (left) towards Lonscale Fell.

You can then pick up a path, initially signposted for Skiddaw, that takes you up to the magnificent viewpoint at the summit of Latrigg.
