Latrigg is to Keswick what Loughrigg is to Ambleside and Helm Crag to Grasmere: a small hill, an excellent viewpoint. a great favorite of loacl folk and visitors. Latrigg is pastoral and parkland in chractor, not rough fell, and the summit is the easiest promenades, so that this is not a climb callimng for old clothes and heavy boots: 'Sunday best' is quite appropiate dress.
