This ended up as a full day's hike

We set off on the morning, after breakfast, from our B&B in Kewsick and hiked first to the Castlerigg Stone Circle and then up to Walla Crag.

It was a bit of a climb but well worth it for the views of Derwent Water and the town of Keswick from the top. We made it to the top for about 11:00, after setting out just after breakfast.

The hike down is a bit stony, so if you've got a stick I would suggest you bring it along. Got down to the bottom at about 13:00.

Rather than walking back into Keswick, we decided just to hike down to one of the many piers where the small Keswick Launch stops off. We jumped on at Ashness and went for a small cruise to Nicol End and the back to Keswick.
