A brilliant view over Windermere, definitely worth going :) a little rocky to get there and wouldn't go too near the edge and there is a steep drop.

A good walk up though trees with a lovely view over Lake Windermere a bit slippery when icy and also some loose stones but well worth it.

Short walk from Ambleside for a beautiful view.
We did the Troutbeck to Ambleside walk and veered off for Jenkins Crag - wonderful walk with excellent views :-)

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