Getting there

There is a lay-by at the top of Gale Road. From Keswick, take the A591 Carlisle road, turn right a few yards after the roundabout intersection with the A66 and then right again uphill, very sharply. Follow the signposts to Skiddaw. Although it is a public road, it is a little rough in places so take care. This is a popular starting point for walks up Skiddaw, so it’s best to get there early if you want a parking place. There are several routes up to the summit.  The easiest, is the newly constructed Latrigg Access for All path which leaves the Gale Road car parking area and is surfaced for approximately one kilometre to a bench at the final viewpoint just below the summit.

What to Shoot

The view north is of the high grassy flanks of Skiddaw and Blencathra, very impressive but not as good as that to the south where the contrast is total. There are unobstructed views over Keswick and down the full length of Derwentwater towards Borrowdale and the high fells of Central Lakeland.
