Robinson is a great mountain with a distinct appearance in the Newlands Valley. This great walk of only 9km summits the fell from Buttermere via High Snockrigg. There is a national trust car park at Buttermere and also an area of free parking if your not a member located just near the church alongside the road. The start of the walk passes through the the village of Buttermere and follows a steep path up the side of High Snockrigg and emerges at the top just near Buttermere Moss. The crossing of the moss is tricky, but a path does cross along the best route, although it is very wet in places! Waterproof footwear needed here!

After the crossing of the moss the path to the top of Robinson is steep but the flat summit is not far away. The view from the top is fantastic, with the high Scafell range standing proud to the south, and a view down Newlands to the north.The descent from the top follows a long ridge down go Buttermere lakeshore. The route is very steep in places, but the views are superb. I found it easier to keep off the path on some sections as the grass alongside had better grip! Once you arrive at the road along the base of Robinson the route follows the lakeshore path back to Buttermere. The views over the lake to Red Pike and High Stile are lovely and there is also a rocky tunnel you have to walk through which is unique to this part of the Lake District.
