If the weather is too cold on the higher summits or you just want an easier walk this could be the answer.

Found this walk on the OS circular walks of the Lake District and it didn’t disappoint. Really fantastic scenery despite very wet terrain in parts. We were lucky to go when snow adorned the peaks making it almost picture perfect. Not too strenuous so our...More

We only saw part of this area due to the quickly settling mist and vast amount of slush, but it was a beautiful hike nonetheless. The slush did increase the difficulty of the walk, so I would suggest avoiding it in the winter if you...More

We did this walk (6.5 miles) and it took us 3 hours. Quite muddy in places but other than that, the walk was great with such beautiful scenery.

There are several routes to choose from and all offer wonderful views and enough walking to work off breakfast and sharpen the appetite for dinner.

Loughrigg has amazing views all around the lakes but what makes it so unique is that you dont have to climb to the top. There is alot of open space on and around Loughrigg which make it ideal for those looking to take younger walkers...More

Lots of different trails to follow. You don't have to climb to the top. Places nearby to visit are Elterwater, Grasmere and Skelwith Bridge. A great walk for people at different abilities.

When you do not want to go onto the high fells because of the appalling weather, or if you want to do something less strenuous, then Loughrigg is a nice walk from Ambleside. We had not gone all the way to the Lakes to sit...More

Beautiful and not too challenging walk from Nab Cottage to the Britannia Inn for lunch then walked back via Grasmere. Food at the Britannia good although too much onion gravy on Cumberland sausage.

Great little hill walk despite the mist, great views of Windermere Grasmere and Rydal Water. Stunning scenery from most aspects of climb and descent. Reccomend walking round to Grasmere to ascend.

All the car parks! Best route is through the park and up the fell, we did this route, see link. Look at Walklakes website for a relatively easy route up to summit, 3hours, 6 miles?

I think it would be difficult to get lost around Rydal Water and Grasmere. Park at White Moss Car Park or one of the other public car parks on the A591 and then follow the footpaths around the lake. I'm sure the kids would... More

Hello, sorry I've not come back sooner, as regards the 79 year old, I would say not suitable, to be honest there are no easy routes and it's quite a steep climb. Best not to put yourself in any danger.
