Catbells - overlooking Derwentwater


Catbells, 445m, 1424', overlooking Derwentwater is a splendid fell to walk.  Combined with a launch trip from or back to Keswick, the options are to follow the (quite steep) ridge or use the easier terrace along this prominent fell overlooking the Borrowdale and Newlands valleys. 

From the moment you step on the fell you can start to enjoy sensational panoramic views over Keswick, Derwentwater and Borrowdale. In the West the views of Newlands Valley and the Western Fells make this walk without rival for such a small amount of effort.

The beautiful Catbells has always been a magnet for walkers. Catbells’ popularity was boosted recently on TV by Griff Rhys Jones and Julia Bradbury.
