A delightful lakeside walk around one of the Lake District's most Westerly lakes. The walk itself is reasonably straight forward and provides stunning scenery along the way with the surrounding mountains providing a superb backdrop to Buttermere. The walk starts from the National Trust car park on the North-Western side of Buttermere and heads through the village and down to the shore of Buttermere itself. The walk then follows the lakeside path and only briefly deviates from this, to pass through Gatesgarth Farm. Early morning walks often provide excellent photographic opportunities when the water is more likely to be flat and provide wonderful reflections.
