Skiddaw

Details

Skiddaw dominates the town of Keswick and at 931 metres it is one of the largest peaks in the Lake District.
This mountain is one of the oldest formations in the Lake District (and indeed in Europe) and provides a variety of gentle ascents for even the most inexperienced walker.
The smooth summit of Skiddaw offers great views across Skiddaw Forest to the Great Calva and Knott peaks.
