Rannerdale Knotts

A short delightful circular walk including the Wainwright of Rannerdale Knotts from the small village of Buttermere. It does not require any road walking but does cross the Lorton to Buttermere road twice to make use of a handy permissive path.

Rannerdale Hause on the bridleway above Hause Point, was part of the old road from Lorton to Buttermere. No longer do travellers have to climb up the fellside to avoid the rocky knoll of Hause Point. Whilst there is quite a bit of parking available in Buttermere on summer weekends it gets busy early. On the outskirts is the National Trust car park, or in the centre behind the Bridge Hotel is the Lake District National Park Authority car park. Also there are some spaces on the verge above the Newlands Pass road junction.
