Lake Discoveries

The Lake District is famous for its lakes and walking their shoreline is one of the area’s greatest pleasures. However much of the actual shoreline is privately owned and heading out can be a frustrating experience; particularly as the only option is to walk a few 100 yards from the lake on a tarmac road. Beware. The walks I have chosen are carefully picked to avoid this (except in some small doses) and they do showcase the lakes. The walks may be quite long, they may involve a boat trip to increase the pleasures (Ullswater and Derwentwater being particular cases in point) and some may avoid large stretches of shoreline In addition I have included a few of the larger, more accessible tarns, but many such as Easedale and Styhead/Sprinkling offer popular walks in their own right and well worth the little bit of extra effort to reach.
