This is a walk through beautiful countryside typical of the lower Lakeland Fells. It is to the east of Bowness and although it starts with a stiff climb and has one other, the last pull up to School Knott, it is not unduly strenuous. Much of the route is on gravelled paths and tracks and what grass there is has been cropped by sheep. Bowness, as you may know, could be called the Blackpool of the Lake District, but ten minutes into this walk and it has all been left behind with some uncrowded paths and some really superb scenery to look forward to.

A very nice walk and easy to follow, a bit difficult to escape Bowness as much of the walk skirts a housing estate but still some good countryside on view and good views of the lake whilst climbing School Knott.
