"Apparently, for going walks in the Lake District; for that was what he now proposed. Land on the top of Skiddaw and walk for a couple of hours in the heather."

The Lake District is a beautiful area of North-West England that is very popular with walkers, wildlife watchers, outdoor sports enthusiasts and tourists. As its name suggests, it boasts a large number of stunning lakes in between scenic mountains and picturesque towns. Skiddaw is a mountain north of the town of Keswick, which lies on Derwent Water. It is the fourth highest mountain in England, and its peak dominates the skyline in that area of the Northern Lakes. Many walkers enjoy tackling the mountains of the Lake District, often following Wainwright’s Walks, famous guides written by the British fellwalker Alfred Wainwright.
