Quieter and wilder than the eastern side of the national park – though every bit as beautiful – this area is home to many of the region’s most celebrated peaks, with highlights including iconic Great Gable, Pillar and Yewbarrow, as well as England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike.

Unlike other guidebooks which describe a single or limited number of routes to a particular destination, the aim of the Walking the Lake District Fells series is to offer all the options. These are presented as numbered sections which can be combined to create infinite possibilities – from simple ascents to longer ridge routes. You’ll find the classics and popular routes alongside less traditional alternatives perfect for the wandering spirit. The series gives you both the freedom to devise your own routes and the information to make informed decisions, thanks to the clear descriptions of the routes, terrain, hazards, interesting features and safe descent paths should the weather close in. Also included are a handful of classic ridge routes for longer fell days.


Year-round walking. Winter walks, even on the lower fells, are not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.

Straightforward ascents on sometimes clear, sometimes faint paths, and occasionally pathless terrain, to be used as a basis for readers’ own walks. Navigational skills are needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling alternatives are always provided.

Must See

A fresh perspective on classic summits in the Lakes including Scafell Pike, Scafell, Great Gable, Pillar, Great End, Kirk Fell, Lingmell and Yewbarrow, and an inspiring introduction to lesser-known Lakeland fells such as Haycock and Slight Side
