Lake District - Ullswater (Chapter)
This is the Ullswater chapter from Lonely Planet’s Lake District guidebook.
Ullswater cuts a regal 8-mile sweep through the eastern fells. Gouged out by a long-extinct glacier, it’s arguably one of the most dramatic of the valleys, with each shore flanked by serrated summits.
