A full-day mountain (above 600m) walk in Lake District from Seatoller, England, 16.4km (~10.2m) long.
A half-day countryside walk in Lake District from Rosthwaite, England, 10.1km (~6.3m) long.
From the village, head along the road towards the river. About 200m beyond the bridge, a footpath heads southeast towards High Buck How.
The path heads up to Tarn at Leaves, a marvellous little spot with great views north down the valley.
Head over the high ground of Rosthwaite Fell, aiming for the narrow, tarn-dotted gap between Woof Gill and Combe Gill.
The high point of the day is Glaramara, 783m and a popular peak. The best view is looking west over Seathwaite Fell to Great Gable.
Take the obvious path heading almost north. There is a steep path down Hind Gill if the weather's bad; if the views are good, follow the brow of Thornythwaite Fell.
The path drops out at the bridge just outside Seatoller. There is a pub and cafe in the village for the post-walk treats.
