Experience Springtime in the Fells

Springtime is a great time to explore the fells - there are fewer people around, plus willow warblers, peregrines and even rare ring ouzels call out from the trees and crags, and black herdwick lambs start to appear in the fields.

Enjoy the drama of the high fells reflected in Derwentwater, and pick out the iconic mountain ranges. Start off with Cat Bells for your route into the central fells leading to Maiden Moor, High Spy, Dale Head, Great Gable, the Scafell Massif and Glaramara.
