Mountain Goat was established in 1972 operating minibus tours to the more remote parts of the Lake District. In 2014, the company won a tender to develop the main tourist centre in Windermere from South Lakeland District Council, spending £150,000 on redevelopment. The company supports the use of the local workforce to run the centre in order to make visitors more welcome.
The company runs a service for foot passengers crossing the lake from Bowness-on-Windermere to Hill Top. This is route number 525, and runs between Ferry House and Hawkshead. You can also take the 525 from Hawkshead, where it does a round loop via Wray Castle.
