This is intended to be a basic route guide only so you will need to follow a map and or the GPX file.
If you would like to receive by e mail a free GPX file (track converted from the trail we walked) produced by our Satmap Active 10 GPS please contact us quoting Braith Cat. Please note this file is for personal use only and must not be further reproduced without our explicit permission. Those wishing to use the file commercially should make their intentions clear when contacting us. Please note we can not guarantee this file will work successfully on any other GPS or that the data might be corrupted in transfer but we are confident, in most cases when it is loaded into a robust GPS, it will greatly assist navigation.
Murphy and Lottie walked from Braithwaite leaving the village via the bridleway through Braithwaite Lodge to the road to Stoneycroft. We then took the road to Stair and Skelgill. We then followed the road to the car park at the northern end of Cat Bells – then up the mostly well laid and trodden path over Catbells. Having descended from the summit we took the bridleway east (left) down to a lane, then left along the lane before turning right on a footpath through trees down to the bank of Derwent Water (joining the Cumbrian Way). We stayed with the Cumbrian Way until it reached the road at Swinside Lodge. We turned right along the road then left at a fork junction. Then down passed the pub at Swinside. Then right onto a footpath across fields to join the riverside (mostly reasonably laid). We followed this path all the way back to Braithwaite (through the holiday site just before reaching the village).
