I thought i'd introduce the the little ones to going onto higher ground whilst in the Keswick area and it went down a treat (thankfully).The youngest is too small for us to expect her to walk so she stayed in a pushchair and we took a second pushchair just in case for the 4 year old.
We started out from the carpark just north of Latrigg on an easy going path suitable for all abilities.
For such a small Wainwright Latrigg has fantastic views over Keswick,Derwent water the Catbells around to Bassenthwaite Lake.
