Borrowdale Rambler (79/892)


The Borrowdale Rambler - Service 78. This service runs from Keswick to Seatoller via Derwentwater Lakeshore, Lodore, Grange in Borrowdale and Rosthwaite. The ideal way to see this beautiful valley, gateway to the Scafell range which are the highest mountains in England.

Heading up the valley from Keswick, through Great Wood beneath Walla Crag and following the lakeshore, the road forks to the left which is the road to Ashness Bridge and the hamlet of Watendlath, with its picturesque tarn. Keeping to the main road and heading along the Borrowdale valley is Lodore and the thunderous Lodore Falls, made popular during Victorian times, are situated in woodland to the left. Nearby is the famous rock climbing area of Shepherd’s Crag. The route passes the pretty Grange Bridge over the River Derwent and now leads into the ‘Jaws of Borrowdale’, passing the Bowder Stone, a huge boulder of 2,000 tonnes perched precariously on its narrow base and Castle Crag where there are remains of a Roman-British fort. The route winds through the valley to Rosthwaite with a village shop, public telephone, accommodation, pubs and restaurants. The route finally terminates at Seatoller which lies at the foot of the Honister Pass and has a restaurant, public telephone, public toilets, accommodation, campsite and a seasonal Tourist Information Centre.
