The River Brathay. The Lake District
A short walk from Elterwater brings you out on the River Brathay. Here you get some great views over the water and up to the Langdale Pikes. This is one of the places that got me into landscape photography, standing on the river’s edge and looking up at the iconic Langdale Pike skyline
There’s a path that follows the edge of the water which gives you a slightly different view as you walk through some trees and on the water’s edge.

Go for a walk
My recommendation for a walk at the River Brathay is from Elterwater to Skelwith Bridge and back again. The short walks offers amazing views of the Langdale Pikes, Elterwater, some waterfalls and you can get a cake at the cafe or pub at Skelwith Bridge. For an easy walk it has it all.
