This is an easy walk with some great views across the lake. This rock platform is just off of the footpath.

a brisk, heart rate raising walk up but manageable for most, rewarded by the most beautiful view of lake and fells.

Great views from the top and back down in Ambleside you can get a pint or an ice-cream! Just make sure you have lots of water and sensible walking shoes
