The Newlands Valley nestles within the fells on the western side of Derwentwater. It encompasses an amazing array of mountain scenery. Its upper reaches are as wild as any British hills, whilst its mouth is a classic patchwork of fields, walls, trees and hamlets.
This walk tackles the skyline crest and exploits the line of least resistance to reach a significant number of summits. It crosses the famous trio of Cat Bells, Maiden Moor and High Spy then turns west to cross the more remote summits of Dale Head and Robinson.
Latrigg is Keswick’s own fell and one for the ‘must-do’ list for your visit to Keswick. The views from the summit over Keswick town, Derwentwater and the surrounding fells are breath-taking and really help you to orientate yourself. An easy up and down route via Spooney Green Lane from Keswick with a circular route round the summit.
