Castlerigg stone circle
Castlerigg stone circle stands on a hill above Keswick, giving fine views across towards Skiddaw. The 38 standing stones - some are rather small, so a bit disappointing - are from Neolithic man era.
This is the name given to the road coming out of Ambleside thats leads up to the Kirkstone Pass - like the Wrynose and Hardknott Passes (see general tips) this is also a scenic drive.
Take a Boat Trip on Ullswater
Why not take a trip on one of the lakes. There are plnety of places to go out on a boat. It is very relaxing and you can see for miles.
