This walk around Loughrigg Terrace could be described as a circular grandstand view of central Lakelands spectacular views.

Starting at Ambleside walk through the churchyard to Rothay park, cross the park to Miller Bridge, turn right then left passed the cattle grid.

At  Brow Head farm go between Miller Brow and Loughrigg Brow and continue along the path, taking in the views down Windermere to Bowness and to the left Orris Head, considered by the Victorians as the definitive Lakeland view point. Take a look yourself, it’s a half mile walk from Windermere station.

Continue round Loughrigg passing Lily Tarn and the river Brathay below as it winds its way from Windermere to Elterwater. Elter is an old norse word for swan.

Superb views open up to Black Fell, over Elterwater to Little Langdale then on to Lingmoor Fell and Great Langdale

Take the path to the right that bypasses the village of Oaks and leads to Loughrigg tarn, the word tarn is old Norse for teardrop.

As the path leaves the tarn it rejoins the road to Grasmere but as Grasmere comes into view look for a path leaving the road to the right.

The path goes down into a wood before emerging onto Loughrigg terrace.

The view over Grasmere takes in Silver Howe, Yew crag, Helm Crag rising above the village and mass of Rydal Fell to the east.

Wordsworth described the village and it surrounding fells as: the loveliest spot than man hath ever found, and Thomas Grey called it: this little unsuspected paradise.

Continue along the path with Grasmere behind and Rydal Water ahead.

Take the higher route along the terrace, as the views open up over Rydal, with Heron Island and Llittle Isle nestling under Nab Scar.

At the quarry take the path downhill and rejoin the road

At the cattle grid turn right follow the road with Lanty Scar to the right and the river Rothay to the left

Follow the road until you reach the bridge and that lead back to Rothay Park and Ambleside.
