Cumberland - Ulswater - North shore to the south
How to get there -
There are many car parks round the lake but most are pay and display. The most likely opportunity for free parking and easy launching is on the north shore about a mile and a half east of the junction with the A5091. Lay-bys on the lake side of the road, some with very easy launches.
Alternative launch sites are at
Glennridding Steamer Pier
(Pay & Display) - Postcode CA11 0US
Glencoyne National Trust Car Park
(Pay & Display) - Postcode CA11 0

Suggested Launch Site -
Launch over the beach.
As with all lake trips you need to be aware of the weather, particularly the wind, and confident of your abilities in the conditions.
A southern circuit of Ulswater might include Aria Point (with an optional walk up to the tea rooms and waterfall), and exploration (without landing) of the islands and a visit to Glenridding Steamer pier and cafe.
Such a trip could be 8 or 10 miles.
