“Pleasant walk with fantastic views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Walked up here a few times now.
We stay with friends who love their walking. This is a nice start to the day with a splendid view of the Lake and the surrounding fells.

“Unbeatable views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We did this walk recently as we were staying in the Bowness-on-Windermere area and wanted to indulge in a walk that offered excellent views across the lake, so this walk was chosen. It is a VERY steep climb, but once you reach the top I can guarantee it is worth the effort as the views are excellent.

On a clear day, like the day we did this, we was able to see both ends of Windermere as well as Morecambe Bay in the far distance. If it wasn't for the height of the trees (to be expected over time) then it would also offer panoramic views of Bowness. If you are in to panoramic photography then I recommend this walk.

I recommend allowing up to 2 hours to do this walk, including the time to do the long way back down via the outskirts of Matson Ground and the time needed to fully appreciate the views.

“EXCELLENT PANORAMIC VIEWS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We splashed out on a walking guide from the Tourist Information Centre in Bowness....60p very well spent.
A 2 hour round trip with some great views as you walk up (you don't have to be too fit), but when you get to the top, you then get some excellent views. Pretty much the whole length of Lake Windermere, the sea to the south, loads of other Fells....GREAT.
Get your walking boots on and give it a go.

“Worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Not too strenuous a climb and worth it for the views of the Lake and also as far as Morecambe Bay on a clear day.

“Hillwalking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Steep climb to start with but a great walk. The views from the top of the fell are excellant. From start to finish it taken around 2 hours.
