Rambing: Walla Crag, Lake District

My family and I went for this lovely walk earlier this year. As well as some amazing views, we stopped at Annie’s Pantry at the half-way point for an excellent lunch sitting by the river.

Starting from National Trust car parks at Great Wood just outside Keswick, this walk climbs steadily through the wood and offers views over Derwent Water. It’s quite a steep walk down the river valley to Annie’s Pantry, but that’s the only refreshment stop on this walk and was well worth the effort. The highlight of the walk is the descent from Walla Crag to Cat Gill – the book has a nice photo of this, as well as lots of pictures of dogs!
