It's scenerific!!!

You want the world's finest scenery? You got it!

Whether it be looking across the still waters of a lake, or the view from the top of a mountain, our videos will give you the inspiration to pull on your boots, grab your cameras, and get out and about amidst the finest scenery on earth. And the best thing is that there is no entry fee to the Lakeland fells, although you'll have to pay for the fuel that you use, and in some cases car parking.

So what are you waiting for?
See you on the fells.

You don't have
to go high
