There are so many fells to choose from in Cumbria but this is certainly one of the most beautiful. Car parking is usually available at the foot of the climb, although you may have to walk a bit. Once you start the climb it does...More

The walk is great not to hard little bit of a scramble towards the top, but the views are amazing and well worth the effort.

My husband and I set out early and managed to get one of the few free parking spaces at Hawes end so avoiding the need for the ferry. The walk up is steep (as expected) but more than worth it for the view. As we...More
