Ling Fell and Sale Fell

This is an easy Wainwright, a nice family fell with great views and a lot quieter than the likes of Catbells. The start is a short drive from kestrel Lodge. I do this as a stand-alone because to do with others it involves a boggy field and long road walk. Alone it’s a lovely little walk on easy, grass paths that can take less than an hour or longer if you meander around the top looking at the views.

Walla Crag, with Bleaberry Fell and High Seat option

Walla Cragg is a nice walk and can easily be combined with an afternoon in Keswick or at Derwent Water. It can be done from Keswick Town Centre, but this would involve quite a lot of road walking so for me, with dogs, through the woods is much more enjoyable.

High Rigg

High Rigg is another small Wainwright that can be tackled a number of ways. This is another small one that I tend to do as a morning or afternoon dog walk. A small family fell that is not too taxing and one that will also need bagging if you’re doing the 214.

Crummock Water Round
