Allerdale Ramble


87 km / 54 miles
From central Lakeland the route heads northwards along the western side of Borrowdale and Derwent Water to Keswick. Here there is a choice of route, either across the foothills of Skiddaw or over its summit, before heading along the Derwent valley to Cockermouth. The Ramble then crosses the agricultural land of mid-Allerdale to reach the coast at Maryport, where it turns along the flat coastline providing extensive views across the Solway Firth.

The route is no longer marked on OS maps and is no longer supported by Cumbria County Council.
