Scattered across the Lake District National Park are hundreds of tarns and small pools waiting to be discovered by the unhurried fell-walker. With their small tent and immense enthusiasm, John and Anne Nuttall have investigated 'every little speck of blue' on the map in their efforts to compile these detailed mountain tarn walks of western Lakeland. From huge Devoke Water to the tiny Lang Tarn on the Heathwaite Fells, the authors reveal that every tarn is unique in its appeal and that the seasonal changes ensure that no two visits are ever the same. Each of the 42 walks is accompanied by a hand-drawn 1:25,000 scale route map, plus beautiful pen-line drawings and details on distances, ascents, starting points and precise routes, including historical and environmental snippets to tempt the reader further. This is the companion volume to "The Tarns of Lakeland, Volume 2: East".
