There is no better place for climbing Scafell Pike, Great Gable and Bowfell. However, size isn't everything and the more lowly Castle Crag will leave you with an enduring memory of the beauty and atmosphere of the Lake District. Catbells, Walla Crag and walks along the River Derwent are cherished family favourites.
Discovering Britain walk with the Royal Geographical Society: A Walk of Art
Of the four main routes up Scafell Pike, the Borrowdale ascent via Sty Head and the corridor route is considered the finest. The high level walk traverses the lower slopes of Great End, Ill Crag and Broad Crag. As you climb you'll encounter fantastic views over Great Gable and finally down over Wasdale Head towards Wastwater.
