A Short Night Walk – Keswick
An easy short walk from the centre of Keswick or Lakeside Car Park by the Theatre by the Lake to Friar’s Crag looking down the length of Derwentwater lake.
Approximately half a mile walk.
You will require a torch towards the end of the trail but most of the path is level – although very slightly rougher ground towards the end.
On the way past the Boat Landings and through the trees listen for the Tawney Owls. Females’ calls sound like ‘kewick’ and males’ calls ‘hoohoo’.
At the end of the trail there is a viewing point (with a bench) that looks down the length of Derwentwater into the dark of the Borrowdale Valley and on still starry nights is an excellent spot for star gazing.
