Fairfield circular walk, from Patterdale, Ullswater, Lake District Walks

Some of the photo highlights from one of the best, but more unknown walks in the Lake District:

Looking towards the summit of Fairfield - one of my best views from the days walking in the Lake District. The river in the foreground made for a nice little composition. It was also a great little place to stop off and grab a bite to eat. And because this Fairfield walking route isn't one of the most well-known - we didn't see anyone else in this valley.

Another of my best views of the day. While climbing to the summit of Fairfield - you get an excellent view over towards Helvellyn, which is the darker summit to the right - and Striding edge is coming in the picture from the left edge of the photo. The peak closest to us here is Dollywagon Pike, followed by Nethermost Pike - with Helvellyn in the far distance.
