Although busy the stone circle is a mystical location-better to be there in the morning or evening when its quieter and you can meditate a little

Hi and the walk from Keswick to Castlerigg is up quite a steep hill so it may be more relaxing for you to take public transport or your own car to the monument. It is possible to park on the side of the road quite close to... More
