Walking and hiking in the Lake District is world famous. Picturesque beauty, high fells and dramatic landscapes all rolled into one.
When it comes to hill walking, we have to give a special mention to Alfred Wainwright; he has provided much inspiration to many people about routes and mountain choices in Lakeland. Wainwright has documented and studied the Lakeland fells through a series of pictorial guides - it is these works of art that provide us with insight into a captivating landscape. These books should be a primary source of information for any keen fell walker and we recommend looking into these when choosing where to go in the fells.
Detailed here are some of the popular mountains in Lakeland; the list consists of some of our favourite routes we'd like to share with you as guides.

Buttermere is one of the most picturesque locations in Lakeland and Haystacks is its crown jewel.
Wainwright describes Haystacks as 'unabashed and unashamed in the midst of a circle of much loftier fells'. The summit and Inominate tarn are Wainwright's final resting place and always worth a visit.
