The Western Shores of Derwent Water

May 28, 2013

Looking again at shorter low-level walks in the Lakes.Derwent Water 008

We walked some of the western shore of Derwent Water on yet another idyllic Lake District day of excellent weather.

Starting from the Skelgill Road we walked down past Hawse End to Otterbield Bay, then along the shores of the Lake.

It was a quite beautiful morning with good clear views and a blue sky, the water reflective and the views far distant.

We wandered alongside the Lake to Brandelhow Bay and Myrtle Bay, past the old lead mine and the house where a veteran of Waterloo once lived.

There were wild daffodils and the fresh green leaves of the Springtime trees.

Then we climbed up through the woodlands of Brandelhow Park. From the open park beyond, there were superb views over Skiddaw and Blencathra.

A good short ramble, which I commend to you.Derwent Water 017Derwent Water 019
