This is a high level linear walk on the east side of Coniston water. Much of the route is open fell walking following a magnetic bearing so remember to take a compass. The X12 bus service provides a convenient way to get to the start from Coniston but note that this service does not run on Sundays. A highlight of the walk is exactly what it’s called - High Light Haw - offering splendid surprise views of the south end of Coniston water and fells to the west and of Morecambe Bay to the south. It’s a good place to stop for a lunch break. Arthur Ransome fanatics can delight in spotting locations that inspired the writing of his Swallows and Amazons books. The walk later enters the fringes of Grizedale Forest and descends to emerge at Lawson Park. Views of the lake from below Crag Head in the early evening sunlight provides a spectacular place for a later stop with the option of making a short excursion to the top of Crag Head.
