From the path below Whiteside, to a short climb up Brackenthwaite Hows, we then descend through woodland where red squirrels hide out, reaching the edge of Crummock water and a shoreline path. On arriving in Rannerdale, a spectacular display of bluebells covering the fields is a sight worth seeing. A steady ascent of Rannerdale Knotts provides amazing views of the entire valley, followed by a steep descent and a return to the start.
Distance: 7.5 miles
Time: 4.5 hours
Total ascent: 350m
Start: 10 am at Lanthwaite Green car park. Grid ref. NY159208

This is a very gentle walk following keswick to barrow for those who perhaps want to stretch out tired legs or for those wanting to come and laugh at us all.
Starting at Pelter Bridge (NY365059), we will walk around Loughrigg Terrace and the lake shore to Grasmere where there will be a teashop and food stop if people would like to eat. Return to Pelter Bridge via the coffin route for drinks at the Badger Bar.
Note - Option of Loughrigg summit from Pelter Bridge for those who wish to visit but I am unlikely to be leading you there due to keswick to barrow. We will arrange a meeting point.
Start Time 10.30 Pelter Bridge car park
Grade 1 without Loughrigg. An easy Grade 2 with.
