Through woods and alongside the River Derwent, climbing to a superb viewpoint on the way. Castle Crag is the tiny, steep-sided fell that sits in the Jaws of Borrowdale. Small it may be, but it commands an excellent position within the valley, one that has been used by armies for centuries and is now enjoyed by fell-walkers. This walk heads out across the meadows at the southern end of Derwentwater and then into the woods near Grange before mounting an assault on the summit fort. It’s a short climb, but it’s steep – using a loose path through a quarry spoil heap to get to the top.
