Pace The Peaks

Pace the Peaks of the Lake District with Cathy and Skye

On your own or in a group why not join me to Pace the Peaks?

You may live in Keswick but when did you last enjoy this view over Derwentwater from Walla Crag? As part of English Tourism Week why don't you join me for a FREE circular walk from Great Wood Car Park on Tuesday morning 17th March? We'll go up using the steep stone path beside Cat Gill and return through Great Wood where we may see early signs of spring flowers. Dress for the weather and wear boots or shoes suitable for rough and muddy ground.

10.30 Tuesday 17th March Great Wood Car Park - see you there - just turn up or contact me first so that I know to expect you

I am not leading any walks for Keswick Mountain Festival this year, but I do have a couple of walks planned for that weekend. These complement those in the KMF programme and if you would like to join me you will be very welcome. Click Group Walks above for details

There are plenty of wonderful walks to enjoy during the winter months.

If you are coming to the Lake District get in touch to book a day on the Fells.

Book direct by phone 017687 74824 or email me

I am happy to take individuals or groups out for private bookings throughout the year. If you have particular walks you want to do this is a good opportunity or alternatively you can let me decide on an appropriate walk. The cost is based on 20 per person with a minimum of 60 for the day. Longer or more technical routes may be a little more. Just email or ring for details.

What sort of hiking do you want to try?

Are you happy walking round Derwentwater and would like to walk high above it?

Are you confident on Catbells and would like to try something higher? What about Hindscarth or even Helvellyn.

Are you tired of manufactured tracks and trails? Let's explore away from the 'tourist routes' and even try a bit of scrambling.

Do you want to get fit for that Charity Trek up Kilimanjaro? Come and climb some mountains to get you fit.

Are you a bit scared of getting caught in the cloud? Let's pracice using map and compass.

Whatever your experience or fitness level join me for that extra something that only a local guide can provide.

You'll find more photos and information on my Facebook page and on other pages of this site. Have a look too at my blog Lake District Walkers blog . I will try and update it soon!

Here is my dog Skye on the top of Causey Pike, on the first of many times he has climbed it. He is a blue merle border collie and had his 1st birthday on 4th February 2010. He is an excellent scrambler, enjoyed climbing Helvellyn and Skiddaw in the snow and is now a regular member of the team helping me shepherd you round the fells and keeping us all entertained!.

Sometimes I used to be joined by Rex who lived over the road from us. Here is Rex enjoying posing with a group on top of High Spy.Unfortunately Rex has recently died but just let me know if you would like to bring your dogs along.
