Create an itinerary including Latrigg
Latrigg is one of the lowest fells in the Lake District in North West England, but is a popular climb due to its convenient location overlooking the town of Keswick and the beautiful views down the valley of Borrowdale from the summit. It is the least mountainous of the Skiddaw fells, the summit being almost entirely devoid of rock. The slopes of Latrigg are partially wooded, and logging work is currently being undertaken. One lone tree just south of the summit is prominently viewed in silhouette when approaching Keswick from the west along the A66. It also has petrified trees on top.

  • Easier to get to than Catbells, as you can walk to it from anywhere in Keswick without having to take the launch across Derwent Water. Another lovely hill, albeit the superb view only becomes visible....  more
