Depending on the weather at the weekend (which at this early stage is looking extremely promising), I'm planning on walking near this lake - which isn't - on Saturday morning.

The photo isn't great quality unfortunately, but can anyone tell me what the lake is called and what the high point of my walk will be?

Looks like the area around Old Man of Coniston - could be Levers Water - not sure if you are heading for Wetherlam or the Old man.

Great spot Journeyman - it is indeed the area around C-O-M.
The water in the foreground is Low Water though, with Lever's Water in the background. This shot taken from just near the trig point on C-O-M summit.

Hoping to do both Weatherlam and COM if my stamina allows - walking up via Dow Crag, COM, Swirl How and a quick dash to Weatherlam and back if I still have the legs :)

It's few years since I did that circuit but it's great lakeland walking. I first did it in 1967 from Great Langdale - what a trek it was but I was obviously a lot younger and fitter then. We last did it from a car park near Tilberthwaite (I've never done it via Walna Scar Road). The weather looks Ok for your walk - cold but fine enough for a hill top walk.

All the very best for Xmas and the New Year.

It's a great view from up there.

Here are a couple of shots (a little hazy though) from my trip last year:-
