This is a short walk up to Walla Crag near Keswick in the Lake District.  Despite being only 379 metres in height, and technically a viewpoint rather than a hill (as it lacks any prominence – only 24 metres) it is nevertheless one of Wainwright’s Central Fells. It’s well known that Wainwright wasn’t tied down by height, re-ascent and other such nonsense, instead including those hills that he thought were worth the effort of climbing. We’re certain that those ascending this quick walk from Ambleside, to catch the sunset perhaps, won’t be disappointed with the view over Derwentwater and the surrounding Lakeland mountains from the viewpoint of Walla Crag!
