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. On many occasions Lake District lakeside walking involves tarmac road walking. Beware. The walks I have chosen are carefully picked to avoid this (except in some small doses). Some of the walks may be quite long, they may involve a boat trip to increase the pleasures (Ullswater and Derwentwater) and some may not stick rigidly to the shoreline.

In addition I have included a few of the larger, more accessible tarns. 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.
