There is a handy free car park on the approach to the base of Rannerdale. There are several variations to this walk. Normally most people park up and follow the base of the fell. In May there is a lovely little meadow that has a fine collection of Blue bell flowers. In this version, you ascent up Rannerdale Knott then walk along the ridge down into Buttermere. The return leg runs parallel with Crummock water and the road back to the car park. You get a great view of the surrounding fells and you can use this walk as a stage for some of the longer walks of those.
