This walk will take you over and across Derwentwater, the ‘jewel of the Lake District’. Pick up the path from the car park and begin your ascent through the woods, with the giant Walla Crag cliff looming above.
Climbing up the summit of Walla Crag, you can absorb the magnificent views overlooking the tranquil lake. On a good day you can even make out the Solway Firth and the hills of Galloway in Scotland.
Dropping down the mountain, you then walk over the picturesque Ashness bridge, with the Derwent Water and Skiddaw providing a breathtaking backdrop – a particular favourite of pioneering photographers, the Abraham brothers.
