If you are into walking in the wilds, then this is one of the must see locations. We had the pleasure of going in the morning on a very sunny day. Breathtaking experience once you make the top of climb.

A hard climb for me as not that fit, but once at the top all that disappeared as the view is breathtaking. Would go up again so see that view.

One of my favourite walks in the Lake District not to difficult & not to long. The view from the top is magnificent. Make sure you wear good walking shoes and be prepared for the weather it can change very quickly in the Lakes.

Thoroughly enjoyable walk but beware of horse flies. There were lots on the walk up from Dunmail Raise.
