Ullswater - 10 Leisure Walks

Ullswater - 10 Leisure Walks

by: Keith Wood
Ullswater, the most north-easterly of the lakes, offers good walking opportunities for either the experienced fell walker or those seeking a gentler stroll at lower level amongst its spectacular and varied scenery. Although the key tourist spots of Pooley Bridge and Glenridding can be busy at peak times, quiet footpaths and bridleways are quickly reached and the tranquillity of the area can be truly appreciated.

The walks in this guide are circular and begin at a car park or safe parking location with the grid reference provided. Each route is graded from 'Easy' to 'More Challenging' with further details of distance, height ascended and type of terrain covered, to help with decisions of which walk to choose. The majority of the walks can be leisurely done in a morning or afternoon. Clear route directions are provided together with simple sketch maps.

One of the features that make the 'Boot Up' series of guides so attractive is the emphasis on good landscape photography and the book is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket, protected by the tough cover.

Dacre and Dalemain - 3.5 miles
