This walk takes you to the top of Rannerdale Knotts. Despite the lack of altitude and being one of the smaller and more rounded Cumbrian fells, the views from Rannerdale Knotts are excellent and far outweigh the effort needed to get them. This route gives stunning views over three lakes and many high peaks.
