The walk starts from Watermillock Church where you already have gained a bit of height in the car, and heads along a clearly defined footpath towards Aira Force for 2.5 miles. At Aira Force you can have a wander around and bite to eat and admire this classic Lake District waterfall. On this particular walk, as the views are so impressive we headed back along the same path. All in all the walk tok us around 3 hours with a few stops along the way. There's no steep climbs and it's suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of mobility & fitness. This walk takes in some of the best views the Lake District has to offer in my humble opinion.


A few photos from this classic Ullswater walk in the Lake District

Aira Force - one of the most popular waterfalls in the Lake District and when your there its easy to see why
This is a fairly brief post on this walk, the reason being that you may well have noticed a similar Autumn Ullswater walk on my blog which starts off at the same place but heads up to Gowbarrow Fell too - the full route of that walk is below and you can view a more in-depth blog post here with a lot more photos.

This walk also starts off at Watemillock towards Aira Force but heads up to Gowbarrow Fell.



As ever I hope you have enjoyed that little write up and photos and it inspires you to want to visit the area and give the route a go.  If you have any questions about this route - just post a comment and I'll try and answer.
