Photos - Derwentwater, Skiddaw and Blencathra

(17 products)
Blencathra is a mountain of two sides. The Northern side being a smooth rounded grassy bulk, whilst the south and south eastern flanks sheer off in a number of narrow ridges, the most famous of which (and a serious technical proposition in wintry conditions) is the appropriately named Sharp Edge. Neighbouring Skiddaw is recognisable to many as the huge mass that looms above Keswick and the views from its flanks back over Derwent Water and the Derwent Fells are superb. The area over the northern side (Back o' Skiddaw) is one of remote moorland and one of the least walked areas of the Lake District.
