Lake District walks - Catbells

Plan this walk for a warm, sunny morning, and you will be rewarded by one of the best views in the world...

This is my favourite view of all: the ripples from the launch spreading quietly across the blue lake, Keswick to remind us that people actually live here (lucky them!) and Blencathra in the distance offering its lovely curves and the prospect of rewarding days out in the fells.

Or maybe you prefer the same view in winter...

or winter, with a rainbow?

Zooming in on Keswick, Derwentwater and Blencathra.
