Whilst away for our long weekend in the Lake District we wanted to go for a few walks to take in the scenery. I'm not sure I said as much, but my emphasis was not on taking in any mountains but more of a gentle wander and we found just what I wanted. After a bit of Googling we found that in fact you can walk round Ennerdale lake. It's a proper path which for the vast majority of the route is dead easy walking with just one slightly hairy ascent up a rocky patch but really, it's not that bad.

As we took the cameras and took an awful lot of photographs it did take quite a while to walk round, maybe 4 hours? I think in fact if you had kept up a gentle pace it would have been more like three but the distance was around 6 miles I believe.

The weather was dry but fairly dull but the scenery was still particularly inspiring in my book.

I hope you like my selection of photographs,

  2. These are really beautiful and look you found a stag beetle!! I've not done a walk round any of the lakes, only fells, keep meaning to! If CBC's Dad is not well again, we could do a gentler lake walk.

  5. This lake looks wonderful and I am in love with the pictures! I love places with water, so lakes, cascades, waterfalls, sea, all speak to my heart! I think 4 hours of walking is a lot (for me!), but when you see these wonders of nature, wow, it is all worth!
