The Borrowdale Valley has often been described as the most beautiful valley in England. This low-level walk starts from Rosthwaite, at the southern end of Borrowdale, a popular village for walkers. As Wainright said, "A fellwalker based in Rosthwaite is like a king with many thrones".

The walk passes through a National Trust wood and farmland to Seathwaite Farm, a picturesque setting and a very popular place with fell-walkers as the starting point to the ascent of England's highest peak, Scafell Pike. The walk returns by the hamlet of Seatoller.

The walk is characterised throughout by the breathtaking lush and rugged landscapes and reinforces the argument that the splendour of the Lakes can be appreciated as much, if not more at low level than on the high summits.
