Lake Discoveries

The Lake District is famous for its lakes. 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) 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.
