Buttermere Lake District 7 or 4 Peaks Challenge
Buttermere Lake District 7 Peaks Challenge
An incredible opportunity to discover the Peaks above Buttermere…it’s no secret that the Lake District is one of the most beautiful places in England and without doubt the best way to explore this amazing landscape is by foot.
To start this epic challenge we rise from beside beautiful Buttermere to ascend the steep climb alongside the majestic Scale Force waterfall to the summit of magnificent Red Pike. We continue until 7 of Wainwright’s favourite peaks are bagged, including Haystacks, where he would famously sit beside the tranquil Innominate Tarn pondering life. This is the site where his ashes were famously spread by his long suffering wife.
Our trek is accompanied by breath-taking views over Buttermere and Crummock Water one way and out into the Lakeland Fells the other. Finally we drop back down to stroll home along the eastern bank of Buttermere.
Buttermere Lake District 4 Peaks Challenge
For those wanting slightly less distance, why not take on the first 4 peaks, which provide the same epic climb and all the magnificent views over Buttermere.
No need to make a decision in advance. The routes is the same, just reaching a point where you can decide if you’d rather have a slightly earlier visit to the pub!
