Not really a fan of mapping, walking and navigating around places I'm not familiar with I bought this book, thinking I'd be alright with such a small book, and I may find one or two good walks.
I bought the book overpriced at the local co-op (langdale) whilst I was in the lake district, and even for the price I paid I was extremley pleased with the book.
The detail in some of the guides is immense, it's almost impossible to get lost! And from my experience with this book, the walks I did included breath-taking views, vast, open tarns and many more unique and amazing sights of the true lake district.
I particulary reccomend doing a walk that includes a "tarn", which is a completley natural lake that has developed with no help of human hand (more detail in the book) as you'll simply be amazed. They also provide amazing 'picnic' areas, as not many people are attracted to the less popular ones, you won't be distrubed at all.
At one point, me and my father (who was walking with me at the time) stopped beside a particulary beautiful lake, and listened as we heard nothing. Pure silence.
Another amazing sight that me and my father witnessed was at the top of a mountain, where a jet swooped below us and followed the course of a nearby lake. It was actually below us, flying so low and us climbing so high, you can imagine the impact it had on our walk and the view before us.
If you are expecting a journey to the lake district in the near future this book is definetly something that should be packed, and for less than a fiver (belive me, you'll pay alot more if you purchase it after arriving) it's well worth buying.
