A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

ON LATRIGG 3/7

Latrigg is one of the lowest fells in the Lake District, but is a popular climb due to its convenient location overlooking the town of Keswick and the beautiful views down the valley of Borrowdale from the summit. It is the least mountainous of the Skiddaw fells, the summit being almost entirely devoid of rock. Here the view of Keswick starts to appear as we walked south across the slopes of Latrigg, and behind it the end of Derwentwater Lake.
