Cat Bells and Newlands Valley

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

The route follows the Allerdale Ramble along the side of Cat Bells - an easily followed path with magnificent views of Derwentwater and the fells beyond. A short but strenuous climb takes you to the shoulder of Cat Bells and Maiden Moor. From here there's a further short climb to the top of Cat Bells, which in fine weather has good views in every direction. Return round the other side of Cat Bells in the delightful Newlands Valley. The first stage of this section is on a rough, stony path, so you need to be reasonably surefooted.

This has to simply be one of THE best walks in the Lake District. With fine wrap-around views and 100% superb instructions do NOT omit this if you are in the area. The views are simply breathtaking and awe inspiring. There is a little scramble to the top which could be dangerous in mist but this is well worth it! 20/10... :)

We did this walk in combination with walk 2385 although we did walk 2385 backwards. Lovely views!

This is a fantastic short walk with stunning views, great for those mornings after a heavy night in Keswick.
