About The North Western Fells

The North Western Fells are a group of hills in the English Lake District. Including such favourites as Catbells and Grisedale Pike, they occupy an oval area beneath the Buttermere and Borrowdale valley systems.

The North Western Fells are characterised by soaring east-west ridges and an absence of mountain tarns.

The North Western Fells are entirely surrounded by roads, and additionally traversed by two more.

Keswick and Buttermere provide good bases to the north and west while the summits of Honister, Newlands and Whinlatter passes all provide parking.

The most popular climb in the area is Cat Bells via Hause End, a walk which can be made from Keswick via the Derwentwater launches.
