Friars Crag where stands a memorial to John Ruskin. He later wrote that being taken to Friars Crag as a child was the first major event in his life.

The famous beauty spot of Friars Crag can be reached on foot, via a short walk from the boat landings. The crag derives its name from the pilgrims who once embarked from there to visit St.Herbert's Island. It has long been a contender for the accolade of the most famous beauty spot in the Lake District, the view is truly breathtaking.

Hi Anne

I have again put a link to Derwent Water above.

When you look at photos on Panoramio I think you find that the whole planet is one great beauty spot!

Peter but where is Catbells?

pedrocut on November 20, 2011

Hi Diggory

Here is the last section of the path to the summit of Catbells and you can see where it is on the Google Earth map, being above the town of Keswick in the Lake District of England.

Here is a view across to Keswick as you climb the path

Best wishes Peter
