This is a satisfying and varied walk, starting in the quiet woodlands of Buttermere and heading towards the bustle of Keswick. Surprisingly, perhaps, considering the close proximity of Keswick, much of the stage is in solitude, with only the sound of tumbling waters and the cry of moorland birds for company.
