Those who fancy putting on their walking boots but leaving the car behind may be interested in a walk over the fells of High Seat and Ullscarf in the Lake District.

Featured in the latest monthly newsletter from the Car Free Walks website, the trek starts in Keswick and ends in Grasmere, both of which are connected by bus on a route between Carlisle and Kendal, including Windermere rail station.

It involves a 20.2 km trek starting in Keswick, covering the high ground between Derwent Water and Thirlmere as it crosses the two fells, both of which are on the Wainwrights list.

Spending much of the day above 2,000 ft, it eventually descends into Grasmere village.

The extensive public transport links in the national park mean a range of walking possibilities exist.

From Grasmere, it is possible to climb mountains such as Helvellyn, Seat Sandal, St Sunday Crag, Fairfield and High Raise, as well as enjoying lower-level walks around the lake and neighbouring Rydal Water, or up Easedale.
